Food Network to Air Program on Childhood Hunger

If you have cable or satellite television, one of the many choices you have as you peruse the myriad of channels is the Food Network.  Perhaps cooking and travel is not your cup of tea, and you often bypass that channel in favor of one of the other entertainment and news options.

I'm going to give you a reason to tune into the Food Network on Saturday, April 14.  I know this is not your typical Saturday night viewing, but there is an important program airing that weekend called Hunger Hits Home.  The program, sponsored by Share Our Strength (SOS) and the Food Network, offers a firsthand view of a hidden crisis in our country: childhood hunger. The program is narrated by SOS national spokesperson Jeff Bridges  The program is not just informational; it includes an urgent call to action.

SOS, through its NoKid Hungry campaign has created a special "event" on the Internet and social media to encourage people to tune in that evening.
In the world’s wealthiest nation, 16 million children go to bed hungry every night. Change begins with you — RSVP 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 let us know you’ll join us for this premiere in the comfort of your own home and even invite your friends to come over and watch it with you.
