New mom Kate Hudson has been named a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme, according to People.
The programme helps feed up to 90 million people a year in more than 80 countries and is a cause close to Hudson’s heart.
“As a mother, I understand the vital importance proper food and nutrition play in the life of a child,” Hudson said in a press release announcing her new position. “The work of the World Food Programme is so much more than just feeding people, it’s about strengthening families, rebuilding communities, and ensuring everyone, everywhere has access to the food they need to not only survive, but to thrive.”
“After seeing their work first-hand, I’m sure that if we can get more people involved in this movement we really can move closer to a world with Zero Hunger,” the actress announced.
