Sheryl Crow works to combat hunger and food insecurity in U.S. with 'Nutrition Mission'

Sheryl Crow, nine-time Grammy winning music artist, is turning her attention to something close to her heart: Working to combat the tide of nearly 50 million Americans at risk of going hungry.

This morning on "Starting Point," Crow talks about teaming up with One A Day Women's and Feeding America for their "Nutrition Mission."

"We are on a campaign where if you buy a bottle of "One A Day Women's" they will donate two meals to "Feeding America" up to two million meals," Crow says. "I for one was really shocked in a country like this that there are 50 million people who are here living with food insecurity."

"This is such a great campaign because it is such a great product. I think people want to feel like when they are buying a product they are doing something great," she adds.

Crow says people can go to Nutritionmission.com to share their story to enter to win a $25,000 grant and also a chance to come to New York City and meet her.
