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

MFF Impact

Musicians volunteer their performance, chose a pantry close to home to support, and the audience is asked to participate in the concert by donating - as their budget allows - to benefit the pantry. We could not do this without audience support.

MFF Concert - Donation - Pantry Process

Giving to Music for Food has a 2-for-1 benefit. 100% of audience donations go to support a local pantry. Making your donation through Music for Food shows your commitment to music as a tool for social change and stronger communities.
