A new character on Sesame Street will help the show discuss poverty and hunger.

A new Muppet called 'Lily' will come from a family which struggles to put food on the table. Roughly 17 million American children suffer from food insecurity.

'Lily' will make her first appearance in a special this Sunday called "Growing Hope Against Hunger." Country singer Brad Paisley and his wife, Kimberly, will host the special, which is sponsored by Wal-Mart.
