To help in the fight against hunger in America, General Mills and several Big Machine Label Group artists are teaming up this summer to help Feeding America secure meals for local food banks through “Outnumber Hunger Live.” This marks an extension to the Outnumber Hunger initiative, which has already helped Feeding America secure more than 6 million meals for local food banks.
From now through the end of October, at each of the 35+ concert stops on the “Farmers Insurance Presents Changed Tour,” Outnumber Hunger will make a donation to Feeding America to help secure 5,000 meals for that city’s local food bank. At each tour stop, a donation of $625 will be made to Feeding America—enough to secure 5,000 meals for that local food bank. An Outnumber Hunger tour bus will add to the excitement on the tour, which features country artists Rascal Flatts, Edens Edge and Eli Young Band.
“People in every community across America—nearly 49 million individuals—are struggling with hunger,” said Mike Eli of the Eli Young Band. “With ‘Outnumber Hunger Live,’ we hope that we can help these local communities and continue to raise awareness of this issue in our country.”
“In our home state of Arkansas, nearly 18 percent of the residents struggle with hunger. “That’s more than half a million people,” said Hannah Blaylock of Edens Edge. “That’s why Outnumber Hunger Live is an important part of our tour.”
