RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - There's a new nonprofit group working to help hungry children in Vermont.
It's called Gabriel's Children of the Green Mountains.
The Rutland organization plans to start making nighttime soup deliveries by March to children. Hurley Cavacas, a member of the board of directors, tells the Rutland Herald that cutbacks to the food stamp program hurt families and demand as risen at the food shelf.
Cavacas said children are getting breakfast and lunch at school, but they're not getting supper.
The group is trying to set up a kitchen and is holding its first major fundraiser Friday at the Paramount Theatre.
