And the winner of the Kroger grocery giveaway is…

Local 2 surprised a family from Splendora Wednesday morning with the exciting news

HOUSTON - Congrats to Diane Mahle, of Splendora, who won free groceries for a year from Kroger and Local 2.

Local 2 surprised the Mahle family Wednesday morning at a Kroger store in southwest Houston with the exciting news.

Bill Breetz, president of Kroger, was there to make the big announcement.

"It is tough for some people out there, and to be able to give away some free groceries, and those two little kids, their faces said it all, it was just remarkable," said Breetz.

Diane said her family of five spends about $200 a week on groceries.

"Sometimes it's really a struggle for us," said Diane. "I've tried different things like doing coupons, or doing sales, but sometimes it doesn't stretch."

Now Diane plans to use what she would have spent on groceries to help pay her other bills.

Local 2 would like to thank all who entered our Kroger groceries giveaway. Don't forget our generator contest which is now underway.
