Jeff has been a hunger advocate for more than 25 years, having started the End Hunger Network in 1984. He's passionate about the issue and believes that now more than ever, we have the opportunity to end childhood hunger.

Jeff took the No Kid Hungry Pledge during the filming of the campaign's new television public service announcements, which we look forward to sharing with you. If you haven't already, please join Jeff in taking the pledge. By doing so, you'll help us build the public will necessary to end childhood hunger in America." - Billy Shores, Share Our Strength
