Growing Hope Against Hunger

The advertisement said "Don't miss this fun and educational kids event!!!  And guess what?  I not only missed the special screening of Sesame Street's Growing Hope Against Hunger last Saturday, Nov. 19, but also missed posting a blog to get people there.  (And it showed on KNME back in October!)  

So this is a belated thank you to KNME-TV, Kids Cook! and the New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger for having sponsored this event.

And I want to take this opportunity to highlight this program in case you are able to get a copy of a DVD or if KNME or your local PBS station shows it again.

Here's a promo:
Growing Hope Against Hunger speaks to both children and adults with a story that celebrates community as everyone works to help one another — including Brad Paisley, Kimberly Williams Paisley and their Sesame Street friends. Our Sesame friends are collecting foods at a food drive and meet Lily, a new character whose family has an ongoing struggle with hunger. The Sesame characters learn how their simple actions can make a world of difference. Finally, documentary stories present children’s perspectives on food insecurity and illuminate the impact hunger has on families.
