(KSDK) – Some popular country artists are putting their star power behind ending the national hunger problem in the nation this week.

The Outnumber Hunger concert, which will air Friday on NewsChannel 5, features Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts, Justin Moore, Thomas Rhett, Cassadee Pope, Danielle Bradbery and the Cadillac Three. Sponsored by General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America, the concert will kick off a year-long initiative to fight hunger in America.

Gannett, the parent company of NewsChannel 5, will showcase the concert on all of its stations as well as stream on our website.

According to the Feeding America website, the St. Louis Area Foodbank serves more than 35 million pounds of food to 26 counties.

You can do your part when you purchase a specially marked General Mills product, enter the code from the box on the Outnumber Hunger website and secure five meals on behalf of the local food bank.

The concert will air on NewsChannel 5 Friday at 7 p.m. or watch the live stream.
