Baltimore, Maryland, is now home to the first-ever DMG Foods, which is being hailed as the first "nonprofit grocery chain."

DMG (Doing the Most Good) Foods is a new project from The Salvation Army that aims to make healthy, affordable food available to underserved neighborhoods, especially as an alternative to traditional and high-end grocery stores. The newly opened grocery store is smaller in size than the average grocery store, but it offers an on-site butcher, a bakery, fresh produce, pre-made salads in partnership with the Maryland Food Bank and a variety of educational experiences to empower shoppers to make better nutritional choices.

As part of its mission to make food accessible to all, DMF Foods makes it possible for customers to identify as government assistance recipients online via a kiosk in order to receive a special rewards card that provides complimentary food on a monthly basis.
