GRADD hopes to stop senior hunger in Western Kentucky

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

The Green River Area Development District is trying to stop senior hunger in Western Kentucky.

GRADD, Comfort Keepers, and Independence Bank employees delivered groceries to 360 low-income seniors in Daviess, Hancock, and McLean counties. 

GRAAD officials say the bags have enough food to last two weeks. 

One senior tells 14NEWS they’re on a fixed income and the groceries are a big help. 

“On an income that supplements my groceries,” says Sondra Holifield.  “I have a son here with me.  It just gives us more of a variety.” 

GRADD officials say some of the food was collected in drop off bins around Owensboro and the rest was bought using donated money.
