Every March, orchestras from across the country come together for the League of American Orchestras’ national food drive program, Orchestras Feeding America, which helps those in need. Over the past ten years of Orchestras Feeding America, more than 360 orchestras from across the country have collected and donated nearly 500,000 pounds of food to needy Americans.

Your participation in this program is urgently needed to assist in ongoing efforts to combat food insecurity in the United States. Sign up for the 2018 food drive here. Or, if your orchestra has already conducted a food drive, add your food pounds to the national total. And take note: you’re welcome to schedule your food drives at any time throughout the year, not only during the month of March.

Check out the fact sheet to learn more about the origins of Orchestras Feeding America. For more information about getting involved—and to receive materials to help plan and promote your drive—click here. Questions? Contact Rachelle Schlosser at fooddrive@americanorchestras.org.
