SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – In a partnership between singer Hunter Hayes, Ozarks Food Harvest and ConAgra Foods’ Child Hunger Ends Here program, a concert Saturday night a JQH Arena helps spread awareness of child hunger in southwest Missouri.

Ozarks Food Harvest is one of 10 U.S. food banks that have the opportunity to benefit from Hayes' "We're Not Invisible" tour, which will include a food and fund drive outside JQH in the hours leading up to the concert.

For every $5 or five nonperishable food items donated outside at the Ozarks Food Harvest van, donors can enter to win two sets of tickets, a pair of "Meet & Greet" passes and tour t-shirts.

The first drawing will be between 5-6:30 p.m.

Inside the venue, from 5:30-8:30 p.m., concert-goers can participate at a "Hope Grocery" booth by "shopping" from store shelves, choosing a ConAgra Foods or P&G product with the red push pin "Child Hunger Ends Here" label and taking the product to a "check-out stand." There, they'll enter the code from the product into a system in order to provide one meal to a child in need.

Also when the code is entered, concert-goers will learn if they've won a prize for participating, including a chance to meet Hunter Hayes, ticket upgrades or autographed items.

ConAgra Foods and P&G have a goal to help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. To participate, look for the red pushpin and locate the code found on specially marked ConAgra Foods and P&G products.

For each 8-digit code entered at or Facebook from March through August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to help feed those in need, including children in southwest Missouri.
