David Arquette, Josh Groban and Herbie Hancock were among hundreds of people who skipped lunch on the eve of the inauguration to help raise awareness of hunger.

The stars led a rally outside Washington’s Martin Luther King Library on Monday for Feeding America, an organization that distributes food and grocery products through a nationwide certified member network, and increases public awareness of domestic hunger and advocates for public policies that benefit America’s hungry.

Arquette serves as Chair of the Entertainment Council for Feeding America.
