I am trying to solve hunger in my community. Job loss, the economy, medical bills, and natural disasters all affect a family's ability to put food on the table. Local food pantries like the Center for Food Action work to provide balanced meals for families in need but they need our help to collect food donations.
On December 9, 2012, I organized the first "Music for Many" concert food drive and collected over 2,000 non-perishable food items and $500 in food store gift certificates to support my church (St. Paul Parish, Ramsey, NJ) and county food pantries (The Center for Food Action, Mahwah, NJ). Over 20 local musical acts came together over a 5 hour period and performed for audience members who brought in 3 non-perishable food items as admission.
