This tiny house is touring the country, feeding people Spam

Along the way, it'll be donating money to feed the hungry.

The Spam brand is touring the country this summer in a tiny house.

The 185-square-foot blue and yellow house will travel from New York to San Fransisco, serving up special recipes and donating money to charity along the way.

It's called the Tiny House Sizzle Tour, and it'll be serving things like Spam musubi and sliders, a spicy Spam breakfast burrito, and other unique dishes. Of course, you can enjoy free smells and the sound of Spam sizzling, too.

“The Spam Brand Tiny House of Sizzle Tour encourages you to indulge your 5 senses – hear the sizzle; see the dish come to life; touch, smell and of course, taste various Spam dishes,” Spam Brand Manager Resha Hovde said in a statement.

The tour starts in New York this weekend. Then it will move along the East Coast.

It'll make a stop in Austin, Minnesota – the home of the Spam Museum – on July 4 for Freedom Fest. Then the tiny house tour will hit the West Coast.

You can check out the tour schedule here.

Feeding the hungry

Convoy of Hope, a nonprofit that partners with Hormel Foods, has also joined the Sizzle Tour to get more people involved in the fight against hunger – in the U.S. and around the world.

So every time someone texts SIZZLE to 50555, Spam will donate $5 to Convoy of Hope and will match each donation up to $25,000.

The nonprofit says it's currently feeding about 150,000 children in 10 different countries.
