MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Florida Georgia Line, The Band Perry and Rascal Flatts are among the acts who will appear on cereal boxes to stamp out hunger.

They’re part of the Outnumber Hunger campaign run by General Mills.

They will appear on products like Cheerios, Wheaties and Lucky Charms, as well as Betty Crocker, Yoplait and Nature Valley. Consumers can enter a code from specially marked boxes online to donate five meals to a food bank based on the ZIP code entered.

Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Eli Young Band, Thomas Rhett and “The Voice” winners Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbery are also participating.
