A National Rally Against Hunger to Be Held on Martin Luther King Day in Washington, DC at the Martin Luther King Library

CHICAGO, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Feeding America, the nation's largest hunger relief organization, announced today that on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 19th, at 12:00pm, they will hold a national rally against hunger with Martin Luther King III, David Arquette, and musical performances by Josh Groban and Herbie Hancock. Feeding America and its nationwide network of food banks, is a supporting partner of President-elect Obama's and Vice President-elect Biden's "Renew America Together" national day of service that calls on Americans of all ages to participate in community service and help fellow citizens. The national rally against hunger will take place at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library in Washington, DC and benefit the Capital Area Food Bank, a member of Feeding America. The announcement was made today by Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America.

The national rally against hunger is an effort to raise awareness of the tragic reality that more than 36 million Americans, including 12 million children, are living on the brink of hunger. At the rally, people will be asked to skip lunch for a day and to donate either the food or the money they would spend on lunch to the Capitol Area Food Bank. Also beginning on Monday, January 19th, Feeding America's member food banks will be hosting events nationwide urging people help the hungry in their communities by either donating food or funds. The "Renew America Together" initiative begins on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to honor the legacy of a man who lived his life in service to others. On the eve of the Inauguration, thousands of community service events will take place in Washington and all across the country.
