A Musician-led Initiative to fight hunger in our local communities

Musicians Talk About Music for Food

We believe both music and food are essential to human life and growth. Music has the power to call forth the best in us, inspiring awareness and action when artists and audiences work together to transform the ineffable into tangible and needed food resources.
