Actress Drew Barrymore wants to end children's world hunger.  As Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Program (WFP), Drew works to raise awareness about school feeding programs and lobbies Congress for new legislation.

"I can't think of any issue that is more important than working to see that no schoolchild in this world goes hungry," Drew said in a statement.  "Feeding a child at school is a simple thing, but it works miracles.  I've seen it with my own eyes."

There are about 400 million chronically hungry children in the world, and 57% of them are girls.

Drew is best known for her roles in the Charlie's Angels movies and E.T.
