When Kellie Pickler learned one in five children in the U.S. struggle with hunger on a daily basis, she became determined to do something to help. She has announced a partnership with ConAgra Foods Foundation’s Hunger-Free Summer program at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.

As part of the program, Kellie and other local volunteers recently worked to fill boxes with canned goods and other food items. The boxes will be delivered to many of the 400,000 children who are hungry across Middle Tennessee alone.

Fans can help with the mission as well by visiting and downloading a free children’s activity book, The Hunger Avengers. For every download or share, one meal will be donated to a child in need. Kellie, ConAgra and Feeding America hope to reach their goal of 500,000 meals by September 3, 2012.

Kellie is currently touring in support of her new album, 100 Proof. Want to see how she tours? Check out photos of her beautiful bus HERE! Fans who catch her show will hear her new music as well as Kellie talking about how to become a part of ConAgra Foods Foundation’s Hunger-Free Summer program.
