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.
