Last month, two grocery stores shuttered in downtown Augusta. Both of them - a Whole Foods and a Kroger - cited a lack of customers as the reason. The Kroger was the only full-service store within a two-mile radius of downtown. These closures have made it much more difficult to find affordable, healthy food there.
Joining us is the operator of a food pantry in Augusta, Christy Cunningham. She’s the Executive Director of the Downtown Cooperative Church Ministries. We also speak with Garth Graham, Cardiologist and President of the Aetna Foundation.
