Government Shutdown = Hungry Memphis Kids

Free meals for hundreds of Memphis children suspended after shutdown
The government shutdown immediately sent newsrooms across the country searching for local angles.  We covered a number here in Memphis.  The Boys & Girls Club counts on a federally funded meal program.  It was suspended thanks to the shutdown.  I was actually working on another story when we got word of this.  I thought it was worth more than a mere mention.  Fortunately, the club was more than willing to help relay the challenge congressional inaction was causing.
