Hunter Hayes is joining ConAgra Foods and P&G in the fight to end hunger in America. Billboard reported on March 3 that Hunter Hayes has partnered with the two companies, who will donate the cash equivalent of one meal to Feeding America each time someone downloads Hunter Hayes’ song “Invisible” from iTunes.
ConAgra and P&G will also make donations when consumers enter codes from specially marked packages of their products into the Child Hunger Ends Here website or Facebook page.
Hunter Hayes has been involved with the fight to end hunger since the 47th annual ACM Awards in April of 2012. At that time, Hunter Hayes was brand new to the country music scene, still promoting his first single “Storm Warning.” Even so, he was given the very important task of co-writing a song to help promote the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. The result, a song called “Here’s Hope” was beautifully interwoven with John Lennon’s “Imagine” and performed by Little Big Town while images of children in need played on a slide show in the background.
As Hunter Hayes shared on the ACM Awards in 2012, one in five children don’t know where their next meal will come from. Feeding America intends to change that statistic.
Feeding America currently supplies food to over 200 food banks across the US. In addition, they provide free meals to kids through after school programs, weekend backpacks filled with easy-to-prepare meals, school food pantries and more.
In addition to allowing “Invisible” to be used as part of the campaign to end hunger, Hunter Hayes will be bringing Child Hunger Ends Here along on his first tour.
We get to go even further and work with them on the tour. They are going to do some really cool stuff as part of our tour. I couldn't be happier that we are going to get to be a part of spreading the word about an issue, but how easy it is to help and what we can all do.
The Invisible Tour kicks off March 20. The song “Invisible” is available for download now through iTunes.
