Dierks Bentley gathered his band, crew, and tourmates LANCO today at Nashville’s Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to help launch the “Hunger Free Summer” campaign where they packaged over ten thousand pounds of food for more than 8,600 meals to families in need when school meals are not available during the summer months.

“Typically when a tour is a about to launch, you get your band and crew together for some drinks before the run, but I wanted to make sure we did something different this year,” said Bentley. “We got everyone together to really start off with what it’s all about for me right now…gratitude. The more we get to do and grow out there on the road, the more I want to make it all mean something and Second Harvest is doing great work to make a difference in our community.”

For 40 years, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee has followed its mission of feeding hungry people and finding innovative ways to solve hunger issues in our communities.  As a private, not-for-profit and tax-exempt organization, Second Harvest distributes food and other products to approximately 490 nonprofit Partner Agencies in 46 counties in Middle and West Tennessee.
