LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- The Hunger Task Force hosted the third annual "Taste of the Garden" event down at the Kane Street Community garden.
The proceeds from the night benefit the task force and the garden, which helps provide fresh produce for families in need.
The night included garden-inspired appetizers from local chefs, along with beer and wine tasting and dessert. There was also a silent auction and some live music.
The goal of the event is to showcase the garden and highlight the need to grow affordable and healthy food for families.
"There's people on food stamps who have a limited income who do not have the means to access that produce and that's what the community garden is for," said Shelly Krause, executive director of The Hunger Task Force. "We can grow the produce with even their help, and you know, besides getting the free produce for their families, they can learn some skills maybe take it home to their own back yards."
The garden can always use volunteers, if you're interested you can click here.
