While his animal welfare record isn't something worth cheering about, Justin Bieber's efforts to help kids in a variety of difficult situations have always been commendable. 

The 19-year-old, recently back from a European concert tour, surprised students at Whitney Elementary School in Las Vegas Sunday with food donations and a personal visit. Bieber made the stop as part of a new partnership with Child Hunger Ends Here - a campaign working to deliver food to some of the 17 million kids in the U.S. facing hunger. 

"Justin Bieber coming means a lot, these kids get to see that someone really important to them believes in them," Headmistress Sherrie Gahn told "Today."

As part of his commitment to the school, Bieber announced he will also stock the school's pantry with endless treats (hopefully, some healthy) for the next 12 months. 

This isn't the first time that Whitney Elementary has benefited from Bieber's generosity. He performed a holiday concert for the students in 2011 and also made a $100K donation to help with Gahn's fundraising efforts.
