Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley are continuing to help those struggling with food insecurity, pledging to donate one million meals to people in need nationwide. Meal company Tiller & Hatch, which Paisley and Williams-Paisley co-founded, has partnered with Feeding America member food banks for the initiative, announced on Monday.
"We're on a mission to help those struggling with hunger and food insecurity," Paisley shared in a video with his wife. "Due to the pandemic, it's a real crisis." "Many people who never thought they'd need food assistance are now seeking it, meaning more than 54 million people may experience food insecurity in 2020 including 18 million children," Williams-Paisley added. "That's one in four children. It's heartbreaking."

Paisley shared that to help address the issue, Tiller & Hatch is embarking on a Million Meal Donation Tour in partnership with Feeding America. Trucks will be traveling the country and donating food to local food banks in 15 cities, handing out frozen Tiller & Hatch meals. The tour began last week in Detroit and will continue in cities including Houston, Los Angeles and Atlanta.
"I can't imagine worrying about where my kids' next meal would come from or putting them to bed hungry. It breaks my heart that anyone has to," Williams-Paisley wrote on Instagram. "For #HungerActionMonth our company @TillerandHatch has partnered with @FeedingAmerica for a Million Meal Donation Tour. More than 54 million people may experience food insecurity in 2020, including 1 in 4 children. Help us help them. Visit tour.tillerandhatch.com to learn how. #EveryMealMatters."
