(WXYZ) — A couple originally from metro Detroit are now working to end hunger nationwide through their national volunteer organization HungerMitao.

They provide meals to those in need across the country. And now Raj and Anna Asava are teaming up with a local food bank for a special event. They're joining us for the 7 UpFront segment to talk about it.

"This is not an organization. This is a movement. It is a movement to raise awareness about the hunger issue across America. It is shocking to know that 40 to 50 million people across America don't know where their next meal is coming from. So we wanted to make sure there is awareness about this issue and it's a model to engage the community in the fight against hunger by throwing our force behind feeding America and their network of food banks across the country that ensures that everyone in every zip code that is food challenged gets access to nutritious meals," Raj Asava says.
