Benchmarc Restaurants chef/owner Marc Murphy, a City Harvest board member and a spokesperson for Share Our Strength, joins “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer to discuss the importance of addressing the issue of childhood hunger in the United States.
“When you think about what happens when you’re hungry, when I’m hungry — these kids can’t learn. They can’t learn how to play, they can’t learn how to do math,” Murphy says. “We have to invest in the future of our country. We have to feed our kids so they can be smart and keep going.”
