Watch #HungerHitsHome

“We’re the richest country on the planet and we don’t have a single community that’s hunger free. We should be ashamed.”

- Jim McGovern, Congressman

You would never think that this statement would be spoken about our country.  It should not be true but as heartbreaking as it is, it is true.

Hunger Hits Home — a new documentary about childhood hunger in America premiering April 14 at 8pm/7c on Food Network features real parents who you would not think were struggling to feed their family.  Jeff Bridges, National Spokesperson for Share our Strength tells us that we can end child hunger by 2015.

Check out the trailer for Hunger Hits Home here.

The new documentary, “Hunger Hits Home,” takes a first-hand look at the crisis of childhood hunger in America through the eyes of the parents, children, anti-hunger activists, educators and politicians on the frontlines of the battle. The film is part of an ongoing partnership between Food Network and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.

Is there any way to get a DVD copy of this program? Will it be on TV again?

Ellen that is very interesting. Seeing as how we are all misinformed by the media could enlighten us on what is in the “pink slime”.

You know hunger hits home is going to soon take on a whole new meaning…. and this is just food for thought. I am from a community where one of the processors makes finely textured beef – pink slime if you will… and because of misinformation about what it is and isnt, meat prices are going to SOAR. That means more will be hungry.
I sure hope everyone really takes a look at what this ‘pink slime’ is and isnt.. Mostly at what it ISN’T.And where else it is used.

Eliminating making use of all the entire animal is not only wasteful , it is irresponsible.
