Groups team up to provide meals for SE Mich. kids

DETROIT (AP) -- A number of groups are asking corporate and community donors to come together to reach a goal of providing 2 million meals to hungry southeastern Michigan children this summer.

Forgotten Harvest and Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan want to raise $250,000 for the Hunger Free Summer campaign. The groups say they raised $36,000 in the first week and will be raising cash through Sept. 1.

Donations made during the 10-week Hunger Free Summer campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Charter One Foundation, Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hiller's and The Young Foundation.
