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

Music for Food Notes Cards

Amidst the chaos, people need food, community, and connection more than ever. Help your family and friends celebrate birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and graduations with Music for Food musical "note cards" - emailed greetings that contain a few minutes of music from an MFF artist and a personalized message. Pay what you can, and your donation will be sent to a pantry of your choice. You may also specify the occasion and musical style of your card on the order form here: https://musicforfoodnotes.square.site.

We commit to our mission of feeding people. We can still share music. We can still send hope and light.

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.

Music for Food Online Concerts

In this time of crisis, our neighbors who experience food-insecurity are among the hardest hit. In lieu of our regular concerts, Music for Food is presenting online performances to support multiple food pantries.
