High-Tech Grocery Shopping

High-Tech Grocery Shopping

Tech Tuesday explores how online ordering, delivery and pick-up services are linking consumers to farmers and changing the way we buy groceries.

Many of us still push a cart up and down the aisles of a supermarket to buy our groceries. But some people are opting for a virtual cart that lets them tap in items while sitting at a soccer game, then pick them up curb-side or have them delivered. Tech Tuesday explores how online grocery shopping creates new relationships between consumers and farmers, and why it's been slow to penetrate underserved "food deserts" where it could change the way people eat.
