Scarlett Johansson is taking a stand against hunger!
The actress and her co-star, Jeremy Renner have become official spokespeople for the charity, Feeding America. And it’s an issue that’s close to her heart. The Golden Globe nominee revealed that before she was a mega-famous star, her family relied on the govt to keep fed! She said:
“My family grew up relying on public assistance to help provide meals for our family. Child hunger in America is a real and often overlooked problem, but one that together, we can fix.”
In a recent PSA, she also stated:
“The are 16 million children struggling with hunger in America. That’s one in five daughters, sons, neighbors and classmates who don’t know where their next meal is coming from, yet billions of pounds of good food go to waste every year. It’s time we do something about it.”
With her summer blockbuster The Avengers: Age of Ultron set to release May 1, Scarlett is really leveraging her fame for a good cause. See the PSA HERE!
