"I am announcing a call to action," said Dr. Phil."To my viewers and especially those who have stuck with me throughout my 10 seasons on the DR. PHIL show, to help me along with Feeding America to achieve 10 million meals."

"We are thrilled that Dr. Phil is committed to fighting hunger on a national basis," stated Michael Flood, president and CEO of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, "We have partnered with the Dr. Phil Show for several years locally and appreciate this support."
