ENGLEWOOD - A local food bank is trying something new to provide healthy meals for the needy.

The Center For Food Action of Englewood recently planted two gardens. They're growing squash, tomatoes, zucchini and other vegetables.

The goal is to provide low-income families with healthy vegetables they might not be able to afford.

"They're very expensive," says Irwin Vogelman. "And therefore, most people will avoid them and spread their dollars out for other things."

The vegetable plants were donated by a local landscaper.

The Center For Food Action is planning more gardens at their seven other locations.
