I'm here at the Great Falls Food Bank as Austin Martin and the Herd prepares lunches for the Great Falls Public Schools.

Shaun Tatarka Executive Director of the Great Falls Community Food Bank tells us about the local celebrities Austin Martin and the Herd.

Today they're putting together our backpacks for kids, which is a program that feeds elementary school kids K through six in our Great Falls Public schools on weekends and holidays. It's one of our most important programs. And, the teachers and administrators at Great Falls Public Schools just love it. And so we're thrilled to have Austin and his boys here, helping us out.

This band has come together and decided to help communities, everywhere they travel.

Lead Singer Austin Martin comments about his tour. Feeding the Herd, is the name of our tour. basically, we are going around every city and rocking shows, waking up early and, hitting food banks, and we're just bagging groceries. And also, we have, delivered groceries to, families in need in every community we are in as well.

Volunteers are important to a community, and this local Montana band is bringing great music and a helping hand to communities all over the U.S.
