This year's special is raising money for several charities, including the Children's Health Fund and Feeding America. "Extra" went behind the scenes with DeGeneres and actor David Arquette as they toured the L.A. area food bank, The Foothill Unity Centre, for Wednesday's show.
"We can all make a difference if we pool together and donate a small amount,' DeGeneres explained. "$10 will be 90 pounds of food. We have enough money, resources -- no one should be hungry and no one should be hungry in our own country."
