(CNN)Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Oates and his wife Aimee are reviving Oates’ Song Fest 7908 to fundraise for Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.
The economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic is driving up food insecurity across America. Feeding America estimates that one in six Americans could face food insecurity as a result of the pandemic.
“The loss of jobs from this pandemic has had a far-reaching impact on our economy, resulting in millions of American families who can no longer put a meal on the table,” John Oates told CNN. “Aimee and I firmly believe that in our country like ours, no one should go without food.”
The virtual star-studded fundraiser will stream on Nugs.tv on March 20 at 8 p.m. ET. Oates and YouTube sensation Saxsquatch will host the event.
