‘Recipe' Video Highlights Hunger With An Empty Plate
A new PSA aims to raise awareness for Hunger Action Month
Feeding America aims to feed hungry Americans through its nationwide network of food banks. For Hunger Action Month in September, the organization has launched a PSA asking people to take action to fight hunger in their community. Styled like a recipe video, it features a series of cooking instructions without ingredients that results in an empty plate. The final plate concludes with a note that says this could be dinner for 1 in 7 Americans.
No one can thrive on an empty stomach, and hunger affects 48 million Americans including 15 million children. During Hunger Action Month, people are being encouraged to tell their friends and family what they can’t do on an empty stomach by writing it on a plate, taking a selfie and posting it to their social media channels.
