“The Dude” fights to end childhood hunger

One in five kids goes hungry in America - a statistic the national "No Kid Hungry" campaign hopes to change. Bill Shore is the founder of the national nonprofit working to end childhood hunger in America, and Oscar-winning actor, and part-time Montana resident, Jeff Bridges is the campaign's national spokesman.

Both men will be in Montana on March 21st - in Darby and Billings - to promote the campaign's "Breakfast after the Bell" program, which aims to make school breakfasts available to a million more children.
    In this feature interview, News Director Sally Mauk talks with Bill Shore and Jeff Bridges, via speaker phone from Los Angeles, about their efforts to end childhood hunger. Bridges says it's discouraging that it is still such an issue.
