SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Thousands of kids in the Capital Region rely on school lunch programs to make sure they get healthy meals, on a regular basis. But what happens when school is out of session? Often it can be hard for low-income parents to provide that extra food.
That's where groups like the Schenectady Inner City Ministry step in. The group has partnered with the United Way of the Greater Capital Region on two mobile food trucks.
The "meal mobiles" will deliver more than 300 fresh and healthy meals to kids in need.
"We have kids when we turn corners, they are already lined up. Or they see the truck coming around the corner, and everyone starts running up to the truck," said George Warner, with the Schenectady Inner City Ministry.
These food trucks only extend the Inner City Ministry's work. They already feed more than 2,200 kids a day.
