MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Salvation Army's mobile pantry was out Wednesday handing out hot dog lunches to kids in Milwaukee neighborhoods. 

It's part of the Salvation Army's "Feed the Kids" summer meals program. Organizers say with school out for summer, some kids don't get a balanced meal. 

"Some of the kids don't have meals at home, parents are working, some kids are latchkey kids and they don't get a hot meal or any kind of meal when the parents are gone, a lot of kids are going hungry and we just don't want to see that happen," said Salvation Army Major Mary Boyle. 

The Feed the Kids program runs through August 24. So far, the Salvation Army has served more than 4,700 meals to young people this summer.
