MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- A food pantry is hitting the road. Organizers of the program are making sure kids in Madison, Wisconsin get fed when they're not in school.

River Food Pantry launched its mobile lunch program in June. The program, MUNCH, distributes nutritional lunches when the Madison School District's free meals aren't available.

The program operates out of a van, traveling to six neighborhoods. The van stops in these neighborhoods on weekends and during holiday breaks, delivering packed lunches to the kids

"Same place, same time, every non school day. So the kids are expecting us," said Jenny Czerkas, River Food Pantry Executive Director.
