Global Activism: Alleviating Child Hunger Around the World

Over 16,000 children die every day from starvation related illnesses. 
And “Feed My Starving Children” is a group that hopes to do just that.
They send nutritional packets of food to children and their families in 45 different countries. 
Last year alone, they sent more than 30 million meals abroad. 
Bea Pedersen is the Chicago Director of Development for “Feed My Starving Children.” 
She's helping the organization open a facility in Chicago. 
Bea Pedersen told me how “Feed My Starving Children” got started.
