As part of their participation in the Outnumber Hunger initiative formed by General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America, The Band Perry's Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry recently paid a visit to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier in Elmira, N.Y.

The siblings were there to help honor and recognize Kyle Halm, a resident of Pine City, N.Y., and volunteer firefighter. Kyle was voted the winner of TBP's Hometown Contest, which had fans write short essays about how they are working to help their local communities. As the winner, Kyle got a visit from the trio, who participated in a volunteer activity at the food bank and then a luncheon at the Webbs Mills Volunteer Fire Department.

“We are big believers in community—folks coming together to make big things happen. Kyle brought us all together today—he has the spirit of the Pioneer. It was a rewarding experience to pack boxes at the Food Bank and to share a meal with our Webbs Mills firehouse friends,” said the Perrys in a statement.
