Hunter Hayes may be known for his crooning and his ability to make tweens swoon, but he will now be fighting childhood hunger.

Ending child hunger starts one meal at a time. Singer Hunter Hayes has announced his partnership with ConAgra and Proctor &Gamble’s “Child Hunger Ends Here” program, which aims to deliver seven million meals to children in need in 2014. More than one in five children in America, or 16 million young people nationwide do not know where their next meal comes from, according to ConAgra.

"My new single 'Invisible' speaks to anyone who has ever felt outcast, alone, or invisible, including children who suffer from food insecurity,” said Hayes in a press release. “Hungry kids are in our schools, our neighborhoods and even right next door."

Each download of Hunter Hayes’ new single from iTunes will result in one meal donated to Feeding America, and the same donation will be made for every purchase of a ConAgra or P&G product like Chef Boyardee, Hunt’s and Healthy Choice (just look for the red pushpin on the product, ConAgra representatives explained).  Up to 10 local food banks with the highest number of zip codes entered within their service area will receive the monetary equivalent of a 100,000-meal donation, which comes out to $11,111.
