Country singer Dierks Bentley is kicking off a new program to fight hunger in Nashville.

Bentley teamed with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee for their Hunger Free Summer program.

The program is aimed to feed kids who aren’t getting daily lunches because school is out.

“We will have children. They don’t go hungry. We’ll have breakfast, lunch or dinner for those children,” said Bentley.

Bentley is set to go on tour this summer and said this community project was a great way to kick off the tour.

“The older I get, the more you give,” said Bentley. “It feels good to know that you’re helping out and making a small difference in the community.”

Second Harvest said it will feed about 6,000 kids every week this summer.
