Valiant is a proud sponsor of City Harvest‘s Summer in the City, a group dedicated to help people who don’t get enough to eat.
That’s why we’re urging you to watch an amazing documentary about childhood hunger that premieres this Saturday, April 14th, 2012 at 8 pm Eastern on the Food Network.
The program is entitled Hunger Hits Home. It powerfully tells the story of hardworking American families who are struggling with hunger. There are fathers like Oscar Walker, who says in the film, “I think the biggest misconception that we could ever have in America is that when a person works that they’re not gonna be hungry — that there’s no reason that they should go hungry. When that’s just the biggest misconception, the biggest lie that you could ever fathom.”
The documentary also profiles hunger heroes who are involved in the No Kid Hungry campaign, like Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who shares: “Our nation should be able to feed our children and if we can’t do that there’s not a lot of hope for anything else we hope to do as a people.”
We urge you to take the time to watch the documentary so that you can bear witness to the issue of hunger–particularly childhood hunger- in this country.
