CHICAGO -- Feeding America announced today that Miley Cyrus, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Marcia Cross, Lance Bass, Alison Sweeney, Christina Applegate, OneRepublic and Rob Thomas have joined Sheryl Crow, Ben Harper, Joel & Benji Madden, Jonny Lang and Tom Morello in the fight against hunger and to participate in the "Rock a Little, Feed a Lot" benefit concert on Tuesday, Sept. 29 at the Nokia Club, 800 West Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles 90015.

September is Hunger Action Month and the star studded benefit is being held to help raise awareness and funds for the 35 million people who are at risk of hunger in America. Tickets for "Rock a Little, Feed a Lot" are on sale now at ticketmaster.com.

Miley Cyrus, Rob Thomas and OneRepublic have pre-taped special performances that will be aired during the concert. Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Marcia Cross, Lance Bass, Jeff Probst, Alison Sweeney and Christina Applegate will be presenters during the concert. Legendary comedian Garry Shandling will perform a stand-up comedy skit.

"It is so important for everyone across the country to dare to be conscious and aware of the struggles of those around them -- even if those struggles are not the same as their own. Feeding America does just that, and it's a great privilege for me to unite with them in their cause," said Crow.

Adam Shankman, producer and director of "Step Up," "Hairspray," "Bringing Down the House" and "17 Again," is directing the event.

Proceeds of the concert will go to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank and Feeding America.
