The cast and crew of Modern Family will be teaming up for the next month and a half with Feeding America and the USA Network to help provide more food to families in need this holiday season. USA is organizing a major fundraising and volunteer support endeavor for the anti-hunger organization which facilitates a network of over 200 food banks around the country. Starting today and running through mid-December, USA will run elaborate PSA campaigns that profile real American families to raise awareness of hunger concerns that occur throughout the United States. The on-air spots will also direct the viewers to Modern Family themed website where users will be encouraged to “like” a local food bank on Facebook, volunteer at a local food bank and donate at least $1 to Feed America. One dollar to Feed America, translates into nine meals! The USA Network will also be matching the donations up to $30,000. The on-air campaigns coincide with a USA-hosted Modern Family Fan Appreciation Day that is set to take place today in Westwood Village Theaters in California. The event is allows 1,000 contest winners to attend the show, which will feature a live table read with the cast members as well as a Q&A session that includes the series creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd. "Forty-nine million Americans lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. This Modern Family event is a great platform to help shed light on this enormous problem and encourage people to join Feeding America's efforts to address it," said Toby Graff, senior Vice president of public affairs for USA Network. "The ongoing online pledge drive will help guarantee that many more American families will have food on their holiday tables."
