Actors Dennis Weaver and Valerie Harper have put together some of rock music's biggest names to make an album and video so they can feed more homeless.

"The sad part is, there is a need for that growth because the hungry part of our population just keeps growing," Weaver said Monday in Los Angeles.Since the two actors founded Love is Feeding Everyone in 1983, LIFE has increased its number of meals in Dallas and Los Angeles from 400 per week to about 104,000.

Some 26 performers, including rapper M.C. Hammer, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Little Richard plan to sing on the album's feature track, "Raise the World."
