The members of Little Big Town–Jimi Westbrook, Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet—recently collaborated on a project outside the recording studio to support a worthy cause.

The band, winner of the Country Music Association Vocal Group of the Year award, helped stuff backpacks in support of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee Backpack program, which benefits needy schoolchildren. The foursome has teamed up with ConAgra Foods and the company's Child Hunger Ends Here campaign, which raises awareness of the millions of children who go hungry every day.

Karen, Jimi, Phillip and Kimberly, who are set to tour with Keith Urban next year, joined groups of young volunteers in stuffing backpacks with canned goods and other nonperishable items.
