AmazonFresh was first released in March 2017 as AmazonFresh Pickup, a drive-in grocery concept. It allowed users to shop for groceries online and then reserve a time to pick them up at the store and have them loaded into their car.
In July 2017, it was reported that AmazonFresh was selling meal kits. Then, on November 2, Amazon announced that it was discontinuing the service in some neighborhoods. This is likely due to the company shifting its focus to Whole Foods, after acquiring the grocery chain in August 2017.

Is Amazon Fresh Worth It At $14.99 per Month?
Like most things it really depends. If you are able to determine how much of something you use, and can consistently use the same amount, it really could help you. As more and more services and retail stores become more automated, like this, there will be a shift away from taking trips to the grocery store for a few things. The service costs $14.99 per month, and if you spend more than that on gas to and from the grocery store in a month the service is worth it.
