Deserts come in all shapes and sizes. The Walnut Hills Kroger on McMillan Street closed Wednesday, which has prompted concerns that the neighborhood now resides in a food desert.

According to the USDA, that's a community where at least 500 people and/or at least 33 percent of the census tract's population reside more than one mile from a supermarket or large grocery store.

Though the new Corryville Kroger location has opened, low-income residents and residents without access to transportation in Walnut Hills now find themselves more than a mile away from the nearest Kroger.
