I am honored to be working with Feeding America and the ConAgra Foods Foundation to launch the Hunger-Free Summer program – to make sure kids at risk of hunger have access to nutritious meals year round. So, while school may be out for summer, lunch is always in session.

This summer I am going to be traveling across the country – from Orlando to Los Angeles – to Feeding America food banks that received grants from the ConAgra Foods Foundation – to volunteer my time, but more importantly, to raise awareness about this important issue.

“Amazing Boobs” Highlight Katharine McPhee’s ‘Tonight Show’ Performance

‘American Idol’ season five runner-up Katharine McPhee visited CosmoGirl to talk about how her ‘Tonight Show’ performance had people – including her mother – talking about her boobs, how her new blonde hairstyle changed her style, her beauty tip opening her jaw to put makeup on her cheeks, trying to talk her hubby into adopting a dog, and the pros and cons of dating older men – since she’s married to 44-year-old Nick Cokas.

“Everybody’s been talking about that top all week,” Kat said of the ‘Tonight Show’ outfit. “My intention was not to look busty. I kept pulling the ladies to the side, I didn’t want it to look distracting. When I got off to the side, everyone was like, ‘Your boobs looked amazing.’ My mom e-mailed me actually and said, ‘Wow, your boobs looked great.'”
