The Ad Council in collaboration with NBC and The Today Show created a weeklong series called "TODAY Takes Action," which featured the premiere of new television PSAs starring TODAY's anchors on behalf of social issues. Each anchor selected a different issue they feel strongly about, and participated in brainstorming up a creative way to relay its message.
Savannah Guthrie chose to focus her PSA on hunger prevention and involved Feeding America and our clients. Visiting a school in Connecticut, Savannah saw first-hand how hard it is for children struggling with hunger. She wanted to raise awareness of the fact that even in America 50 million people — including 1 in 5 kids — don't know where their next meal is coming from. To do so, Savannah decided to race around New York City setting up the biggest dinner party ever.
