New Zealand gang feeds hungry children

Tribal Huk, a group with a violent past, runs military-like operation to feed needy children on North Island.

    New Zealand is probably not the first country that comes to mind when one thinks of where child hunger is a problem.
     
    But the country has 40,000 children who are dependent on charities for food.

    Ironically, some children are receiving help from a gang with a violent history.
