Before departing the event, all children will pledge to care for the environment and take home a certificate to honor their positive promise.

“WRECK-IT RALPH” Teaser Poster

Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore (TV’s “The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in “Wreck-It Ralph.” Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Step Brothers”) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, “30 Rock”), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy.  He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch, TV’s “Glee”) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, “The Sarah Silverman Program”) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade.  Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.


‘HUNGER HITS HOME’ A Special Presentation (video)

The documentary will premiere on Food Network on April 14th at 7 pm CST, presents and unfiltered examination of the hunger crisis plaguing our nation’s youth.

*Download NO KID HUNGRY – Viewer Guide

HUNGRY AT HOME goes on a cross-country odyssey from New York City to Washington, D.C., suburban Virginia and Texas’ prosperous Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, giving viewers a bird’s-eye view of the hunger crisis through the lives of three hardworking families struggling to make ends meet. In Norfolk, Virginia, an ex-military man with four children must take a civilian job for a fraction of his service pay. A single father in Allen, Texas, is on the verge of losing his home and unable to feed his 10-year-old son. A young couple in New York City lacks access to the fresh fruits and vegetables their children desperately need. All of them have discovered that no community is immune to childhood hunger.

And in the halls of the nation’s capitol, funding cuts threaten existing assistance programs even as the need for them increases. As politicians debate the need for 15 separate federal nutritional assistance programs, the problem continues to grow.

But HUNGRY AT HOME also offers hope for children in need. The film profiles some of America’s heroes in the continuing fight against childhood hunger, including a determined food pantry founder who makes the battle personal and an elementary school principal who refuses to let his students go hungry. It documents the work of government officials and not-for-profit leaders who will move mountains to mobilize necessary resources. With efforts large and small, these people are helping to fulfill Share Our Strength’s commitment to ending childhood hunger in America by 2015.

Each family profiled in HUNGRY AT HOME finds unique solutions to their unique problems, utilizing traditional methods including SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps), as well as innovative ideas such as subsidized Community Supported Agriculture baskets for families without access to fresh foods, or in-classroom meals that ensure students get a balanced breakfast. But with problems this diverse, anti-hunger activists agree that there is no quick fix to the devastating effects of hunger on American children. They also agree that finding a solution is one of the most critical issues facing Americans today.
