Grocery stores tend to be scarce in some of Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods. 

People may have to travel miles to buy fresh produce, meat and dairy products, because they live in what’s known as a food desert.

The USDA defines a food desert as a low-income area where at least one-third of residents live more than a mile from the nearest big grocery store.

But efforts, such as the new Pete’s Fruit Market and a mobile market by Pick 'n Save, are helping to make fresh food available in areas that need it most.

Russian hackers did not try to infiltrate Wisconsin’s voter registration system after all.

The State Elections Commission met in Madison Tuesday to discuss claims the Department of Homeland Security made regarding concerns of a potential system breach back in 2016.

Last week, the Department of Homeland Security announced that Wisconsin was one of 21 states that Russia attempted to hack during the 2016 election. Suspicious IP addresses linked to system breaches in other states raised concerns here.
