In a statement about the event, Feeding America say: “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more then 54 million Americans are struggling to put food on the table – that includes about 18 million children.
“Through Rock For Relief, we hope to make even a small impact and help our fellow Americans.
“Over 40 million people are served each year through the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks and we want to help.
“Every dollar donated to Feeding America helps secure and distribute 10 meals to people facing hunger. We have started this fundraiser to allow families who are struggling to sit down at the table and share a meal.
“So please click on the donate button and give whatever you can!”
