I just found out about the newest Sesame Street Muppet, Lilly. Her family struggles to put food on the table. Tonight on PBS at 7pm & 10 pm there is a special about Hunger in America featuring Lilly. It may be a little late to see this tonight, but perhaps you can see her on Sesame Street starting this week.
Here is a link to an article and a 5 minute video about Lilly and her mission to bring awareness about hunger to a new audience.
You can help alleviate hunger in the Detroit area by volunteering or donating to Forgotten Harvest or Gleaner's Food Bank.
