Hunger on Sesame Street

Hosted by

Seven-year-old Lily is the newest Muppet on Sesame Street, introduced in last night's prime-time special, Growing Hope Against Hunger.  Lily is bright-eyed with flaming red hair, but she lowers her head when she tells her new friends that she sometimes needs food from a food pantry. But Lily not only gets food from a food pantry, she volunteers to help out there, too. Joan Salge Blake is Clinical Associate Professor at Boston University and the author of Nutrition & You.
