We’re the richest country in the world, yet we can’t feed our own children---over 17 million kids go to sleep hungry, every night. We should be ashamed.
This Saturday night, the Food Network will premiere a first-of-its-kind documentary on childhood hunger in America.
The documentary, Hunger Hits Home, narrated by Jeff Bridges, tells the story of three American families facing hunger, and takes a close-up look at the impact hunger has on a child. The documentary also provides a potent and urgent call to action — something everyone can do to make a difference.
I’m proud to be a part of this documentary, along with Share our Strength’s ‘No Kid Hungry’ campaign, to bring attention to what is a defining issue for our country.
We hope you’ll watch the premiere on Saturday, starting at 8:00 p.m. EST.
What: Hunger Hits Home, narrated by Jeff Bridges, national spokesman for No Kid Hungry
