“When 1 in 8 Americans are food insecure and have to make a choice between things like medicine, electricity, education and a meal… we know that we have to do everything we can to increase everyone’s access to healthy nutrition. In this country or any other for that matter, we should endeavor to let no one, man, woman, or child, struggle with access to good food; which in turn, means good health. Good living starts with good food. I’m proud to join Feeding America’s Entertainment Council and look forward to being an active member. Thank you to Feeding America for this opportunity to serve and for inspiring me to participate in this vital mission.”
