Should be "hungrig".

Look out for false friends; words that look like words from your language, but with a different meaning. "Bekomme" means to get or to receive. In German you say that you "have hunger". "Hungrig" is a word, but you normally say "Ich habe Hunger" or in this case "Ich bekomme Hunger".

Right. "Ich werde hungrig" would work, though.
