COLUMBIA RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist KELLIE PICKLER volunteered her time on TUESDAY, JUNE 26th at SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE. As the national spokesperson for the CON AGRA FOODS FOUNDATION HUNGER-FREE SUMMER program, PICKLER showed her support and helped spread the word about child hunger in the United States.
"I was really surprised at how many kids go hungry during the summertime, just because they rely on the school meals for food," PICKLER said.
She helped to provide nutritious meals for low-income families by working alongside local volunteers and children to fill backpacks with food and pack lunches. "It really is good for the kids to be a part of (volunteering), too, to just show them how blessed they are," PICKLER said. "It makes you more appreciative of what you have."
