Will Smith in Dallas for Hunger Cause

I just came across this and since we are talking about hunger today...This benefits the North Texas Food Bank.

From The Dallas Morning News:

WFAA-TV's Victory Plaza studio will turn into a celebrity fishbowl on Tuesday morning when Will Smith stops by to visit Good Morning Texas and promote his new film, Seven Pounds. While Channel 8 viewers are by now familiar with on-camera spectacle of post-game crowds milling about the studio during the ABC (and, of course, Belo-owned) affiliate's 10 pm newscast. But this Tuesday morning will offer the rare opportunity for some completely justified screaming-in-public when the man known as Mr. Fourth of July/the $25 million dollar Man and/or the Biggest Movie Star in the World gets his up-close-and-personal groove on in Victory Park. The show begins at 9 am, so figure out what the ideal arrival time is and be part of the throng.

Editor's note: Smith will also host the Dallas premiere of his upcoming movie Seven Pounds at Cinemark 17 at 11819 Webb Chapel Rd in Dallas.

The event will benefit the North Texas Food Bank. Those attending are being asked to donate one a non-perishable food item for their chance to see the film. The red carpet is event is open to public. But the screening is private and limited to theater capacity. Admission to screening is first come first served. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early to event. All donations will go to the NTFB to feed families for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

Here's the schedule for the Tuesday red carpet event:

2 pm: Fans can bring their donations to receive a wristband to the screening
5 pm: Watch the red carpet arrivals (open to public)
7 pm: Premiere Screening begins (must have wristband).
