Hunger is still an epidemic, but there are key organizations and bands working to stamp it out. Want to Outnumber Hunger? Do it with The Band Perry.
General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America have teamed up for the second year in a row to Outnumber Hunger in a national initiative that helps fight hunger in local communities. New this year, the initiative will kick-off with an Outnumber Hunger Live! concert, complete with a star-studded roster of country artists headlined by The Band Perry, the face of this year's Outnumber Hunger campaign. Outnumber Hunger programs have helped Feeding America secure more than 12 million meals since March 2012.
"One of our favorite things about writing and performing music, other than getting to play for our fans and country music family every night, is that it truly gives us a platform to help others," said Kimberly Perry, lead vocals for The Band Perry. "Last year, we had the opportunity to participate in Outnumber Hunger and our eyes were opened to the problem of hunger in America, which is why we so strongly support this cause and want to take an even bigger role in supporting Outnumber Hunger this year."
The Band Perry, Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Greg Bates, Cassadee Pope and Florida Georgia Line will play a special concert to raise awareness for Outnumber Hunger, Outnumber Hunger Live!, on Friday, April 5 at The Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas as part of The Academy of Country Music ACM EXPERIENCE, a three-day music event leading up to The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. Concert attendees will have the opportunity to help Feeding America secure meals through special on-site activities.
