“Hunger Games” movie cast asks fans to help end world hunger

23 March 2012

The “Hunger Games” movie has teamed up with the World Food Programme to raise awareness about the plight of millions around the globe who don’t have enough to eat.

The movie is based on the book of the same name and is about teens who are forced to fight to the death in government sponsored games. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world and deals with several social issues including poverty, starvation, and the effects of conflict.

WFP’s Bettina Luescher tells Julie Walker they joined forces with the “Hunger Games” because hunger plays such a big role in the film and the movie is a great way to reach a younger generation.
