Sunday, October 9 at 7 p.m. – Growing Hope Against Hunger
(Rochester, NY) – Growing Hope Against Hunger, a Sesame Street special, airing Sunday, October 9 at 7 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11), speaks to both children and adults with a story that celebrates the importance of community as everyone works to help one another — including Brad Paisley, Kimberly Williams Paisley, and their Sesame Street friends, Rosita, Grover, and Bert.
Our Sesame friends are collecting foods at a food drive and a community garden and meet Lily, a new character whose family has an ongoing struggle with hunger. Together, Lily's family finds strength in helping others who are experiencing similar circumstances. Through animations and songs, the Sesame characters understand what Lily is going through and how their simple actions, such as planting a seed, can make a world of difference. Finally, documentary stories present children's perspectives on food insecurity and illuminate the impact hunger has on families.
