KFC Wants “Hunger” To Be Heard

Tomorrow night the Presidential hopefuls will take questions at a “Town Hall” meeting in Nashville. If someone asks about hunger, KFC will donate 20 large to world hunger relief efforts.

Hunger kills 25,000 people worldwide every day. KFC’s sound-less ad aims to spotlight this important issue which often goes undiscussed.
“Global hunger has reached epic proportions,” KFC President Roger Eaton said. “Starvation kills more people worldwide than war, AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. This issue deserves the national spotlight and we hope someone gives this important issue a voice Tuesday night.”
