Drew Barrymore, the actress known for her many roles since ET as a child, is now an Ambassador for the World Hunger Program. She has been traveling and working with the group, which provides aid through school feeding programs. "Feeding a child at school is such a simple thing to do," she says. And she adds that she's seen what a miracle it is. "School feeding not only fills stomachs, but has a proven track record of boosting enrollment, attendance and academic performance. For just pennies a day per child, this program changes lives – and ultimately can impact the futures of poor countries around the world in a profound way,” she said.
In the above video, Drew talks about the work of WHP. I've put a link on top of this post so people can go over and check out the work this group is doing.
