A pledge to end childhood hunger comes from Academy Award-winning actor Jeff Bridges this morning.
The actor, who won the Oscar for Best Actor this year for his performance in Crazy Heart, launches the “No Kid Hungry" campaign today to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. Seventeen million children—nearly one in four—struggle with hunger in the United States.
American Morning’s Kiran Chetry talks to Bridges and Bill Shore, founder and director of Share Our Strength, the D.C.-based anti-hunger, anti-poverty non-profit partnering with the “No Kid Hungry” project.
Watch to find out how Bridges plans to achieve his goal by filling gaps in existing programs.
