Alicia SilverstoneAlicia Silverstone is encouraging Americans to get fresh with their senators.

The 31-year-old actress has recorded a voicemail message urging voters to call their representatives and ask them to support the FRESH amendment, which senators are set to consider this week.

“A good amendment to the Farm Bill, called the FRESH Act, will cut subsidies for unhealthy foods,” Silverstone says in the minute-long message, adding, “Our kids need help.”

Silverstone recorded the message for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Some 3,000 people got the “Clueless” star’s call Friday and “several thousand” more were to be contacted Monday, a committee spokeswoman said.

A vegan and animal activist, Silverstone has also appeared in advertisements for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
