The upcoming 'Sesame Street' special 'Growing Hope Against Hunger' is introducing a new Muppet character to talk about the growing national child poverty rate. Her name is Lily, and she dropped by 'Early' (weekdays, 9AM ET on CBS) to talk about the issue.

"One of the most important things for me was not feeling like I was alone," Lily said. "The more I got involved with my community, the more I felt like I was helping other families." In the episode, Lily and Elmo will volunteer at a food pantry. "A lot of the time people don't talk about it, but once you do, you realize you just feel better, and people can find comfort in each other."

'Growing Hope Against Hunger' airs Sun., Oct. 9 at 7PM ET on PBS.
