Relay Foods is kicking off an exciting partnership with the Maryland Athletic Club (MAC) by expanding the startup’s popular online grocery service in Baltimore with a new pickup site at the MAC’s Timonium location. Both Relay Foods and the MAC are committed to making healthy living easier and starting this week customers will be able to order their fresh, locally sourced foods and everyday groceries online at RelayFoods.com and conveniently pick them up from the MAC on Wednesdays from 4-7 pm.
Relay Foods’ mission is to make eating healthy local foods as convenient as possible – and the MAC is Baltimore’s community leader in wellness programs and services, with a knowledgeable staff that helps members to achieve their goals and foster an active lifestyle. Beyond just providing a convenient local place to get fresh groceries, Relay Foods is partnering with the MAC on their Healthy Start program and other campaigns to provide added nutritional guidance and expertise. Together, Relay Foods and MAC are working to make healthy living as easy and convenient as possible for the Baltimore community.
“We are very excited about this partnership with Relay Foods. Here at MAC we are advocates and conduits to living a healthy lifestyle and our members know that good nutrition is as important as exercise to achieving their goals,” said Sharon Nevins, VP of Marketing for the Maryland Athletic Club. “Relay Foods is a wonderful resource for our members seeking healthy nutrition options.”
The MAC is Relay Foods’ 6th grocery pickup location in the Baltimore area. This latest expansion comes just as Baltimore farmers’ markets are closing for the season – providing customers an easy alternative to find many of the same local producers of sustainably grown foods all year long, as well as a full selection of grocery staples.
By combining cutting-edge online shopping technology with the quality of farm-fresh food and the convenience of local pickup or home delivery, Relay Foods is rapidly changing the way people get their groceries. This location at the MAC joins Relay Foods growing list of Baltimore pickup sites and their robust home delivery service already serving the area.
“We know how hectic life can get and how many other things are on your to-do list, so by joining forces with the MAC on this grocery pickup location as well as some of their wellness programs, we hope to make living healthier easier for residents in Timonium and all across the Baltimore.” said Relay Foods’ Jen Hawse, Baltimore Sales Manager. “We have had such success in the this area because there is a real demand for convenient and healthy food choices, and Relay Foods is an innovative service that brings both locally sourced sustainable foods and everyday staples right to our customers.”
Relay Foods is incredibly simple– it works like this:
- Customers visit RelayFoods.com and fill their virtual cart with unique local food products and the same everyday essentials they’d find in a bricks-and-mortar supermarket.
- Orders are put together at a local distribution center and delivered in Relay’s trucks packed in temperature-controlled totes; orders must be placed before midnight on the day of pickup.
- Customers can either stop by their local pickup spot to retrieve their groceries at no extra charge, or have their fresh, sustainable groceries delivered right to their doorstep.
Founded in 2009 and based in Charlottesville, Relay Foods works directly with local farmers, growers and merchants, selecting the highest quality sustainable products to offer its customers – while also giving customers access to exhaustive inventory of items regularly available at the supermarket. Currently serving communities all across Baltimore, DC and Virginia, Relay Foods is continually expanding to keep up with growing demand.
More information about the two pickup site launches is available on Facebook and Twitter or by visiting RelayFoods.com.
