Damon And Affleck Join Hunger Relief Campaign

GOOD WILL HUNTING actors MATT DAMON and BEN AFFLECK are the latest stars to back a charity campaign to help hungry Americans.
The longtime buddies have both filmed public service announcements (PSAs) for Feeding America, a non-profit organisation that aims to help impoverished citizens.
In Damon's PSA, he introduces himself as Steve and admits he's "lost a lot of sleep worrying" about feeding his family, before turning to another man and asking, "How'd I do, Steve?"
The 'real' Steve admits the actor was "a little stiff", prompting Damon to reply, "What? C'mon... You know I have an Academy Award!"
In a more hard-hitting clip, Affleck looks into the camera and says, "Do you realise that 49 million Americans struggle with hunger? That's one out of every six Americans. These people are around us every day; they're our friends, our co-workers, their kids go to school with our kids. Sometimes we're not even aware that they're struggling. This problem is closer than you think - so is the solution."
Country music singer Tim MCGraw, Beyonce and Rihanna have also volunteered their time for Feeding America.
