Earlier last week, Ecorazzi reported in an effort to end childhood hunger in the U.S. by 2015, actor Jeff Bridges has teamed up with  Share Our Strength – a non-profit that partners with the culinary industry to feed starving children.

In a PSA for the organization’s No Kid Hungry campaign, Bridges said, “Childhood hunger in America is a hidden epidemic that robs children of the opportunity to grow up healthy and learn well in school, but we see an end in sight. This is a problem we can solve.”

On Thursday, Bridges appeared on CBS’s Washington Unplugged to share more about the campaign and explain why he decided to get involved.

“According to the United States Department of Agriculture, we currently have 17 million of our children — that’s 1 in 4 of our kids — living in a household where there’s food insecurity,” says Bridges.
