The Hunger Games Partnership to Help Fight Hunger


The Hunger Games movie has partnered with the World Food Programme and Feeding America to help fight hunger. Here are the details from Scholastic:

Today, exactly one month before the release of the The Hunger Games,” the cast and producers are teaming up with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and Feeding America to raise awareness about hunger in the United States and around the world, with a new website and a video public service announcement.

The partnership between Lionsgate®, WFP and Feeding America debuted a video spot with the movie’s stars, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Helmsworth, that urges fans to help end hunger — what they call “the world’s greatest solvable problem.”

“Unlike the characters in TheHunger Games, we do not live in a country in which food is scarce.  There is enough food to feed everyone living in the US, but it’s not getting to millions of low-income people who need it,” said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO, Feeding America, in the press release issued today.

Below is the PSA featuring Jennifer, Josh and Liam, and you can find out more at HungerGames.wfp.org. They even have a quiz you can take for a chance to win signed memorabilia from the cast.
