In the world’s wealthiest nation, 16 million children go to bed hungry every night. Change begins with you — I'm asking you to watch Hunger Hits Home, a documentary presented by the Food Network in partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
This is your chance to learn firsthand about the burgeoning child hunger crisis and how you can make a difference. Please consider joining me for this premiere in the comfort of your own home and maybe even invite your friends to come over and watch it with you.
Tomorrow is a big day in the fight against hunger. You don’t want to miss this, so I hope you’ll join me in front of your TV.
You see, here in America, we have enough food and programs that we know can end hunger. But it’s access to those programs that is the huge problem we’ve got to solve.
One of the easiest ways you can get involved is by watching Hunger Hits Home on the Food Network with me tomorrow night. And remember to tell your friends to do the same, or even invite them over to watch it with you.
As the saying goes, there is strength in numbers. Let’s make sure no kids go hungry on our watch.
