drew.jpgToday on the Oprah Winfrey Show, actress Drew Barrymore announced she was personally going to give $1 million dollars to help the World Food Programe (WFP) feed thousands of school children in Kenya. That’s some serious change — and Barrymore is committed to making a difference, having traveled to Kenya twice in the past two years as a WFP “Ambassador Against Hunger”. From the release,

“‘I have seen with my own eyes what a difference a simple cup of nutritious porridge can make in a child’s life,’ said Drew Barrymore. ‘It helps them learn, stay healthy and sets them on track for a bright future. I urge everyone — everywhere — to help WFP ‘Fill the Cup’ for hungry children, and make hunger history.'”

The donation kicks off WFP’s challenge to America to help feed 10 million children for a year. They are seeking $3 billion — just 25 cents a day — to feed 59 million hungry school children in developing countries worldwide for a year. Last year, the organization fed more than 20 million school children with a daily cup of porridge, rice or beans.
