SOUTHERN COLORADO — Food deserts are a problem for a lot of people in the United States and here in Colorado. KOAA would like to know how far you drive to get your groceries.

How far do you drive for groceries?

56% 1 to 5 miles
17% less than 1 mile
15% 10 miles or more
12% 5 to 10 miles

We're following this survey throughout the day and into tomorrow. Tune in to News5 at 4 p.m. as we review the results!

Editor's note: This survey is not based on scientific, representative samples and is solely for KOAA purposes.

Some of our own neighbors in Southern Colorado are feeling the pressure from a lack of accessible food.

The Avondale Loaf'N'Jug closed down after a string of robberies. Residents now must drive more close to ten miles to reach the nearest store.

News5's Natalie Chuck will be following up with more information on News5 later in the day with more on the dearth of food available in Avondale.
