Veggies For VetsVeggies For Vets (V4V) is a yearly event which raises fund to provide locally grown organic produce to in-need veterans and their families in the form of a CSA produce share. An initiative of Warrior Songs, Veggies For Vets is hosted at Peacefully Organic Produce and CSA (POPs), a veteran-led community farm in Waunakee, WI. In 2014, the program raised funds to feed 10 veterans and their families. In 2015, the program raised funds to feed 16 veterans and families. Please consider donating to help us raise $12,000 in 2016, via GoFundMe.
Funds generated through the V4V event are used to purchase CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares that provide veterans and their families with a fresh produce box every week during a 20 week growing season. In-need veterans and their families are connected to this program by Lisa Vining of the Dane County Veterans Service Office.
