CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Nearly one out of five children living in the Cape is living in poverty, but today those children will be able to go to school with full bellies thanks to the kindness of two organizations. It's part of a nationwide "Feed the Children" campaign.

More than 400 Cape Coral families would otherwise go without. Cars were lined up as early as 8:00 a.m. to pick up boxes of food from the truck, stocked with 25,000 lbs. of food and essentials to get Cape families through the next week a bit easier.

The Gunterberg Charitable Foundation teamed up with the Cape Coral Caring Center to distribute thousands of pounds of food to hundreds of Cape families. A need, they say, often flies under the radar.
