Hunger Hits Home on April 14th Food Network TV



What if your neighbor was hungry and suffering in silence? What if he was only 10 years old. Hunger Hits Home is a documentary about our country and the kids who go hungry every day and every night. There is an estimated 1 in 5 kids who goes hungry everyday.  Food Network and Share Out Strength's No Kid Hungry have partnered to end childhood hunger by 2015.
                   
This April 14th on the Food Network Channel a very important documentary will air "Hunger Hits Home".  Narrated by actor Jeff Bridges, who is the national spokesman for Share Our Strength 's No Kid Hungry Campaign. The documentary will show you who is going hungry and how they got there. The families in the documentary are not people holding signs on the sidewalk or living in a homeless shelter. They are families like yours and mine. They have a place to live and transportation. They have jobs and live in major cities. They are loving parents with the best intentions for their kids. But making hard decisions like buying fresh groceries is part of daily life, because of the current US economy. There are solutions to this horrible problem. Watch the documentary on April 14th on the Food Network Channel. Check your local listings to find the times. Watch and learn how you can make a difference!

Here are four ways to take action against childhood hunger today:
1. Donate to local food pantries
2. Support your school meal programs
3. Call your local member of Congress and make it clear to them how important it is that they support programs to end hunger
