ABC News’ “Good Morning America” kicks off its latest series, “Serving Up Kindness,” spotlighting local food banks nationwide to raise awareness about food insecurity. The series aims to showcase the efforts and impact of these organizations in the ongoing battle against hunger in their communities.
“‘Serving Up Kindness’ captures the spirit of the holiday season showcasing volunteers providing essential donations and a few surprises to those facing food insecurity,” said Simone Swink, executive producer of “Good Morning America.” “At a moment when these issues are at an all-time high, ‘GMA’ aims to showcase the power of communities coming together.”
The series begins Thursday, Dec. 7 (7:00-9:00 a.m. EST), on “GMA” in New York City and Raleigh, North Carolina. In New York’s Times Square, volunteers will pack meals in collaboration with City Harvest, an organization that collects food from restaurants, grocery stores and cafes that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it for free to New Yorkers experiencing hunger. “GMA” will also highlight the work of Food Bank for New York City in the Bronx, the city’s largest hunger-relief organization working to end food poverty since 1983. Additionally, the series travels to Raleigh, where ABC Owned Television Station WTVD-TV will join “GMA”’s broadcast, highlighting the impactful work being done by the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, a dedicated organization providing food for those in need for more than 40 years.
