Brad Paisley helps fight Tri-State hunger

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Brad Paisley and Riverbend Music Center are teaming up to fight hunger in Tri-State households. One lucky fan will get a pair of meet and greet passes to meet Brad Paisley if they donate the most non-perishable items on concert day to the Freestore Foodbank.

Fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to Paisley's concert June 16 at Riverbend Music Center. Items can be dropped off at Freestore Foodbank tables at the entrance gates at Riverbend Music Center June 16 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Doors to the concert open 4 p.m.

"This partnership with Riverbend Music Center and Brad Paisley will bring awareness to the issue of hunger in our community, as well as provide valuable food for our neighbors in need," said John Young, President and CEO of the Freestore Foodbank.

The Freestore Foodbank provides emergency food and services. They distributed 16 million pounds of food and products to the Tri-State last year. Non-contest donations can be made at the Freestore Foodbank's Mayerson Distribution Center, 1250 Tennessee Ave., Bond Hill.

The concert is part of Brad Paisley's H2O II Tour with special guests Blake Shelton and Jerrod Niemann. Tickets can be purchased at, and all Ticketmaster outlets.
