The pair teamed up with their Aussie co-star Liam Hemsworth to film a public service announcement encouraging fans to join the fight to feed the needy around the world.

In the PSA, Lawrence says, "Hunger is our planet's greatest solvable problem," while Hutcherson adds, "Let's make a difference, join us and help stop hunger."

The initiative encourages fans to make donations via text message or online to charities including the World Food Programme or Feeding America.

Feeding America CEO Vicki Escarra says, "Unlike the characters in The Hunger Games, we do not live in a country in which food is scarce. There is enough food to feed everyone living in the U.S., but it's not getting to millions of low-income people who need it."
