The Triangle-based Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is helping feed kids that aren't getting enough to eat this summer. 

Officials with the charity say about 116,000 Triangle students receive free and reduced-price lunch during the school year. They say many low-income families have trouble making up for that nutrition when kids are out of school.  

Kyle Abrams manages child hunger programs for the Food Shuttle.  He says they're trying all sorts of ways to provide for the community.
