There's a new muppet character coming to Sesame Street.

We'll get our first look at Lily during an event in Harlem Tuesday morning.

The producers at Sesame Workshop say Lily represents the 17 million American children the government identifies as "food insecure."

The event is promoting a special on hunger in America coming up Sunday on PBS.
