Natalie Portman was out and about in New York on Sunday night to host a special charity event to kick off the Hungry In America Project.
Held at the Colicchio & Sons Restaurant, and hosted by The Feed Foundation, the event launched a new documentary titled Hungry In America, directed by Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson. The film addresses the fact that one in four children in the US lives on the brink of hunger.
The event was attended by famous faces such as Jake Gyllenhaal, and boasted a host committee that included Ben Affleck, Marcia Cross, Samantha Harris, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Ali Larter, Katherine McPhee, Julianne Moore, Alison Sweeney and many others. Catering was via Tom Colicchio.
Another event will launch the film in Los Angeles on February 28 at Craft. Hosted by Bryan Lourd, tickets start at $250. More information can be found here.
