An advocate of urban farming in Milwaukee is getting some help in his effort to get locally grown foods to communities.

Will Allen founded the group Growing Power and is among this year's 25 recipients of MacArthur Foundation's Genius Grants - worth $500,000. He says he's mainly focused on growing and getting food to cities.
