Kohl's packing food for Hunger Task Force

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Kohl's and the Hunger Task Force are teaming up to make sure Milwaukee area children have enough to eat. 

About 100 Kohl's workers spent the day sorting and packing 50,000 pounds of food for the Hunger Task Force. 

The Hunger Task Force says 1 in 4 Milwaukee kids don't have enough to eat. 

They want to make sure kids are getting healthy, nutritious food. 

"About half the people we serve are children and those kids shouldn't get ramen noodles, they should get breakfast cereal, milk, fruit, and vegetables," says Sherrie Tussler with the Hunger Task Force. 

The food donated Tuesday will be delivered to area food pantries, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters. 

The Hunger Task Force says the food should keep people well fed through early spring.
