Victory Garden Initiative looks fresh fruit, veggies on everyone's table

by

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - The Victory Garden Initiative says it wants to make sure everyone has access to fresh fruits and vegetables, no matter what their income level is.

The Initiative is looking for volunteers to plant 500 vegetable gardens in Milwaukee by next weekend.

The nonprofit effort got its name during last century’s two world wars when people were asked to grow food to support the war effort.

Now, it backs the planting of gardens to improve nutrition and quality of life.
