Yoko Ono's anti-hunger campaign

TOKYO (AP) - Yoko Ono says children have pride, too - so they won't beg for food. But she says too many of them "are in pain and they are starving." Because of that she is trying to keep up the battle against child hunger. The widow of John Lennon says her late husband would be happy to see his song "Imagine" being used by the WhyHunger campaign to help raise money for child nutrition and sustainable farming in 22 lands. Ono says her own bitter experience in Japan helped fuel the project. She says though born into a wealthy family, she experienced hunger when her family fled Toyko to avoid bombing raids during World War II. She says some people she knew starved to death - or died from eating poisonous mushrooms they collected in the hills.
