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.
