Peace Fund Radio #105

As Adrian Paul films THE SECRETS OF EMILY BLAIR (IMDb), Ethan Dettenmaier and I hold down the fort on today’s show (though Adrian does pop in briefly before being whisked back to rehearsing a big scene).

Why does winter break mean hungry holidays for children in 1 in 5 American homes? Ethan and I explore the developmental, educational, and economic impacts of hunger among children and examine the tough choices many families have to make between feeding their children and providing medical care, transportation, and even basic utilities such as heat.

In my Hero of the Week segment, I celebrate the anti-hunger efforts of incredible kids such as Will Lourcey, Joshua Williams, Brittany Amano, Lucy Blossom, Camille and Gabrielle Posard, and Kymani Quarrie before turning the spotlight on Adib Ayay, who uses his skills in technology and business to help farmers in his homeland of Morocco better feed their families and communities.
