Hilary Duff Helps Needy Children

Hilary Duff has proven once again that she’s a good girl by giving back to kids in need.

She visited an elementary school in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Tuesday to promote the Blessings in a Backpack program. The initiative provides bags full of food for children for the entire weekend so they won’t go hungry. It also encourages children from struggling families to maintain a healthy diet to improve classroom performance.

Hil says, "I feel lucky enough to have a voice or a name that people might pay attention to. I think that people might not be aware that a couple neighborhoods away, kids aren’t having food on the weekends, and we just want people to be informed and to know what’s going on in their communities and to help if they can."

Don’t you just love that Hilary Duff?
