Hunger has always existed in America, but as the economy falls the amount of children going hungry rises. Sesame Street is highlighting this problem in a primetime special to air on Sunday night on PBS. Celebrity couple Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams Paisley will be participating in the special. Several families were documented in the program and told there personal stories of how they are currently struggling to feed their children. Also on board is a new Muppet name Lily who talks about how her family does not always have enough food to eat. Several other regular Muppets on Sesame Street, like Elmo and Rosita, are there to show what others can do to help those going without enough food. Some possible ways to help included donating food to local food banks and having community gardens. The special “Growing Hope Against Hunger” airs October 9th at 8 pm ET/PT.
