'Cloudy' Stars Fight Hunger at L.A. Food Bank
September 10, 2013
Anna Faris and Will Forte team up with other cast members again in the animated comedy sequel Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and the stars united for another reason on Monday -- to lend their support to fighting child hunger.
"Today we're helping feed America," Faris said while volunteering at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. "It's such a great organization, we are donating over 200,000 pounds of produce, just today. It's important that we understand that some of these kids go hungry over the weekend."
Forte added: "It's nice to get the word out. I don't think a lot of people know how big of a problem it is, so any way to get the word out on the hunger issue is a good thing."
The food bank event represents the partnership between Sony Pictures Animation and the organization Feeding America's support of Hunger Action Month, which aims to bring awareness to the fact that more than 1 in 5 children in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from.
