Mark Salling Stars in New 'Child Hunger Ends Here' PSA (Video)
Mark Salling may play the not-so-serious Noah Puckerman on 'Glee,' but in real life, he's teaming up with ConAgra Foods' Child Hunger Ends Here campaign, which raises awareness and encourages action to help end child hunger in America.
Last month, Mark spent the day at Hollywood & Highland Center to pack bags of food that were donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and now the singer/actor is starring in a new PSA to help spread the word about the cause.
"Hi, I'm Mark Salling," he begins. "You normally see me roaming the halls of McKinley High School, but today I want to talk to you about something that's really important: the issue of child hunger. Did you know that more than 17 million kids in the United States live in food insecure households? That means they don't have access to enough food to live active, healthy lives."
Mark continues to explain that nearly one in four kids are struggling with hunger every day. So, he's working with ConAgra and other organizations to partner with schools to work towards a goal of donating 5 million meals to children and families facing hunger during the 2011-12 school year.
