The nearest grocery store is a few miles away but it can be easily accessed from the bus.
It’s a good way to get nutritious food for his family but shopping there presents some challenges.
Because he takes the bus, Joshua is limited in the amount of food he can purchase at once (ice cream doesn’t always make it home intact either).
The motel room also only has a small refrigerator and a microwave. Because of this, Joshua is limited to food that can fit in the refrigerator (a gallon of milk doesn’t fit, but a half-gallon does) and what he can cook in the microwave (a frozen pizza won’t fit in the freezer and doesn’t microwave well).
