KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A group in Kansas City, Kansas, is getting community members involved in the planning for a mobile grocery truck that would sell healthy and affordable food in neighborhoods that lack good grocery stores.

Some Wyandotte County residents gather weekly in the back room of a community health center, getting a say in everything from how to stock the food truck shelves to where the truck will park on which days.

The Dotte Mobile Grocer’s Mobile Market Community Council figures getting locals involved in the details will increase the chances that their grocery store in a food truck succeeds.
