The Mid-South is doing its part to fight the problem of child hunger

About 300 children enjoyed lunch Thursday at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Memphis.

It was part of National Hunger Awareness Day.

"Kid's Cafe" featured academic, cultural and educational activities.

The Boys and Girls Club, The Food Bank and ConAgra Foods joined for the special event.

Nancy Peck, ConAgra Foods said, "ConAgra Foods Feeding hungry children is about making sure that Hungry kids are fed and that's why it is so important that we observe this on National Hunger Awareness Day and every day."

Susan Sanford, The Food Bank said, "The Food Bank role, fortunately we are the glue holding all these partners together. The Food Bank feels really strongly about feeding hungry children."

ConAgra Foods officials say Tennessee ranks 10th in the nation when it comes to people suffering from hunger.
