Hunger Task Force runs its own farm

by Crocker Stephenson

In Milwaukee County Wisconsin, Hunger Task Force’s farm is producing about a half-million pounds of fruits and vegetables each year. It is a crop worth nearly a million dollars, says Matt King, who is the Hunger Task Force’s farm director, and it is distributed, without cost, to soup kitchens, shelters, food pantries and low-income senior facilities in the Task Force network.
