"I am honored to be Shazi's first guest on Happy TV and am grateful for this platform to talk about FEED Projects' and Happy Family's shared commitment to fighting hunger and supporting nutrition education. These issues can seem huge, overwhelming and far away, yet the solutions are very tangible and make a real difference," said Bush Lauren. "I encourage everyone to take just a couple minutes out of your day to watch this first episode of Happy TV, not only to learn but also to support Happy Family's donation to FEED Foundation, which will directly aid programs that are helping improve kids' nutrition in the U.S. It is a crucial time to step up and support this cause, as one in five kids lives in a food-insecure household."
