Watch American Idol


Release Date - Apr 20, 2010

Make sure to tune in to American Idol tomorrow night for Idol Gives Back. Feeding America is one of the recipient charities. Members of the Feeding America Entertainment Council will be featured talking about the organization, as well as the experience of families benefiting from the organization.

Last week, Representative Dina Titus (D-NV) introduced the Weekends Without Hunger Act (H.R. 5012). This bill establishes a five-year pilot program that would provide commodities to eligible institutions, such as food banks, to provide nutritious food to at-risk children during weekends and school holidays.

This legislation is a critical step forward in addressing the needs of children during out of school times.

We need your help though to ensure that the bill gets passed. Please contact your representatives in the House and let them know that you support the Weekends Without Hunger Act.
