Jeff Bridges and Share Our Strength's Billy Shore visited the CNN Grill and spoke with Suzanne Malveaux about the No Kid Hungry campaign.
According to the USDA, 50 million people, or 16.6 percent of Americans, live in households at risk of hunger. The Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps, now puts food on the table for one in seven Americans. A family of three (one adult, two kids) earning more than $23,900 would not be eligible for food stamps.
Here's what's at stake in our own backyard and beyond.
"Balls, bumholes, penises. I haven't eaten all those things, but I've eaten most," says Chef Jamie Oliver.

Ah, the 90s. It was the age of innocence – and Fruit Gushers.
It was the decade that brought us "Happy Happy Joy Joy," a painstaking interest in Cory and Topanga's relationship, Shaq's impeccable acting skills in "Kazaam!" and Tamagotchis.
It also brought us Hanson: the then long-haired trio of brothers who belted out their sweet, sweet harmonies to teens and tweens around the nation.
And now it seems they’re taking one such harmony, 1997's infectious "MMMBop," to the beer aisle – with the launch of “MMMHop.”
After all, what better way to relive the decade that was “all that and a bag of chips” than at a bar - especially since Hanson’s original fan base is of legal drinking age now.
Celebrities have been frequenting restaurants for a while now—the Algonquin Round Table was in full effect in the 1920s. So we won’t pretend it's news to see a famous person sitting in a dining room. But it’s quite amazing to see how far some restaurants go these days to protect their more recognizable guests.
Here’s Ken Friedman, co-owner of such NYC celeb hang-outs as the Spotted Pig and the Breslin, sounding like Brad Pitt in Fight Club. “The first rule at my restaurants is don’t talk about who’s eating at my restaurants.”
Here are some other rules we've seen NYC restaurants employ.
Remember waaaaay back earlier this week when wacky buddy comedians Donald Trump and Sarah Palin
The Donald had something to say in response. We're as shocked (SHOCKED!) as you are.

Potential presidential hopeful Sarah Palin brought her "One Nation" bus tour to Manhattan on Tuesday, splitting a pizza at Famous Famiglia with Donald Trump, who recently opted not to launch a bid for the Republican nomination.
iReporter rpcstudio was walking to the subway Tuesday when he saw a crowd gathered outside the pizza restaurant and captured this photo of Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. 'One woman shouted "I can see Alaska from here," as Palin exited. Another man began to chant "OBAMA, OBAMA."'
The party reportedly shared both cheese and pepperoni-topped pies, but documentation does not indicate that any member opted for another of the chain's specialties - a ham and pineapple-topped "Hawaiian Delight."
We chatted with Real Housewife and Skinnygirl Margarita mogul Bethenny Frankel her favorite food city and the "scam" she claims is making Americans poor and fat.

The Vintage Cookbook Vault highlights recipes from my insane stash of books and pamphlets from the early 20th century onward. It's a semi-regular thing.
Well, ain't that a kick in the palate? Some of the country may be getting socked with snow, but the lack of a grill wouldn't have gotten in ol' Dino's way if he wanted a burger. No siree. And he didn't need no fancy-schmancy hardwood lump charcoal, grass-fed heirloom bison, artisanal mustard, or even a bun for that matter.
Per his recipe from The Celebrity Cookbook, edited by Ms Dinah Shore in 1996, this Rat Packer needed little more than a pan, a pinch of salt, and a shot of Kentucky's finest when he wanted to get his beef on.
