"Beyond proud to be asked to record this song for the Food is Fuel campaign with Michelle Obama"

The three-year national media campaign aims to inspire America and its leaders to make ending hunger in the U.S. a national priority. Backed by $300M of donated media exposure from major media partners – including broadcast, digital, out of home and print advertising – A Place at the Table kicks off its campaign with a new public service announcement featuring First Lady Michelle Obama with Arthur’s version of the song played during the spot.
