Jeff Bridges, McDonnell to Launch Program Combating Child Hunger
The three will join other officials Tuesday afternoon at Barcroft Elementary in Arlington to launch Virginia's "No Kid Hungry" campaign. The program will be a public-private partnership to connect low-income kids to federal nutrition programs, like those that provide lunches during summer when school's out.
Currently fewer than 20 percent of kids in Virginia who are eligible for free and reduced price school lunches participate in summer meal programs.
Bridges, who won a best actor Oscar for his role in "Crazy Heart," serves as a national spokesman for the No Kid Hungry campaign.
Start by teaching him that it is safe to do so.
