(KTVI)- Did you know that today is St. Louis World Food Day? Goodwill Ambassador for Tanzania, Doug Pitt explains.
Doug's face may look very familiar because he's Brad Pitt's younger brother.
He tells us all about the event that's happening Friday, October 10th at John Burroughs High School, in Ladue.
Nearly 2,000 St. Louisans are preparing to package meals for those challenged by hunger. The food is designed to reverse the starvation process, help restore health, and improve mental and physical alertness.
The sealed packages have a shelf life of two years.
The cost of each life-sustaining meal is approximately $0.25.
Studies show that one child dies every six seconds from malnutrition and related illnesses.
