‘Sesame Street’ Unveils Muppet to Teach Kids About Hunger

Sesame Street' Unveils Muppet to Teach Kids About Hunger

October 5th, 2011Via: Entertainment Weekly:
Sesame Street has a new muppet who is hungry for more than just cookies.
The iconic kids show is set to unveil a new impoverished puppet named Lily, whose family faces an ongoing struggle with hunger issues. Lily will be revealed in a one-hour Sesame Street primetime special, Growing Hope Against Hunger, which is being sponsored by Walmart. The special will star country singer Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly Williams Paisley, as well as the Sesame Street Muppets.
The special will share the stories of real-life families to raise awareness of hunger issues in the United States, as well as strategies that have helped these families find food. The United States Department of Agriculture estimates that 17 million American children nearly 1 in 4 have limited or uncertain access to affordable and nutritious food.

The majority of Wal-Mart customers are almost by definition under-nourished or at least poorly-nourished, and the food served up at Wal-Mart's food store operations is sometimes not fit for consumption. It's nearly a criminal act to note who sits on the Board there too...

The degree of food spoilage in America (probably true in most modern-day large Western cities) is phenomenal, though the "hunger pantries" have employed something of a J-I-T approach to getting the stuff that is about to be thrown out just in the nick of time to salvage what value there may be and share it with the poor.

I've had recent occasion to brush by notice of two exemplary feed-the-hungry services; I think I am getting a message I asked to receive.
