London: Actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are the latest stars to back a charity campaign to help hungry Americans.

They have filmed public service announcements (PSAs) for Feeding America, a non-profit organisation that aims to help impoverished citizens.

"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," quoted Affleck as saying.

Singers like Tim McGraw, Beyonce and Rihanna have also volunteered to work for Feeding America.
