Want to tackle child hunger in your area?  This fall, “Run 10 Feed 10” campaign, launched by Women’s Health magazine and FEED Foundation, aims to raise funds through a series of 10K runs in selected cities and an online fundraising effort for those who cannot participate directly.

According to the Run 10 Feed 10 campaign, its goal is to have people band together to “…raise a quarter of a million dollars to help end hunger in America right now!”  Funds raised through the effort will “benefit the FEED Foundation.”

The campaign’s website explains,

“Run a 10K with Women’s Health and you will instantly provide 10 meals for those going hungry in your local and surrounding neighborhoods. You can join us in New York City or take part in our 10 City Challenge. If you don’t live in one of those cities – you can still participate! Sign up to run your own 10K. The money from your registration and fundraising efforts will go to those in the metropolitan areas nearest to you. “

The campaign has several celebrity supporters, among them Elizabeth Banks, Joel McHale and Kerry  Washington who appear in a video for the Run 10 Feed 10.
