Kroger and The Food Bank of North Alabama partnered together to take a mobile food to two Decatur Housing Authority Senior homes.

The mobile pantry made two stops to distribute healthy food to seniors who may struggle with balancing food costs with those of medicine, as well as transportation restrictions.

"When your living on a check every month the food helps, it really does," said Betty Muston, a Decatur resident.

The first stop was from 10:00 till 10:30 at Jordan Neill on Wilson Street NE.

The second stop is just next door at Summer Manor from 11:00 until noon.

A representative for Kroger said they expect to feed approximately 130 seniors.

The inititavite is part of Kroger's campaign to end hunger in local communitites by 2025.
