Artists including Luke Bryan, George Strait, Vince Gill, Easton Corbin, Dierks Bentley and more did their parts to raise funds for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee by signing an acoustic guitar, which will be auctioned off at leading charity auction site, Charitybuzz.com later this month.

Now, through December 3 rd, consumers can take part in the auction by visiting Charitybuzz at http://chrty.bz/17TxLum and placing a bid on a musical package including the guitar, signed by more than 12 Universal Music Group Nashville artists, and tickets to a Universal Music Group Nashville artist's concert.

"It's an honor to be part of this campaign," said Universal Music Group Nashville artist, Luke Bryan. "I'm happy to help raise money for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee."

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is one of the largest food banks in the U.S., with a mission to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. According to the USDA, an estimated 50.1 million Americans are at risk of hunger, and 16.7 million U.S. children under 18 are food insecure. In the state of Tennessee, one in four children are food insecure, and in Middle Tennessee alone, 31 percent of the people Second Harvest serves are children. "No one should be hungry and I am honored to lend my name to help the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee," said Country Music Hall of Fame member, Vince Gill.

Yoplait® Greek's participation builds on Generals Mills' commitment to taking action against food insecurity.
