Over the past twelve years, the Orchestras Feeding America food drive has seen over 370 orchestras from across the country collect and donate more than 530,000 pounds of food. The efforts of these orchestras have helped spread the word about how and why orchestras are so valuable to their communities, beyond providing amazing music. The League of American Orchestras invites orchestras to join the 2020 food drive to help those in need. How to take part? Sign up at the Orchestras Feeding America section of americanorchestras.org to add your orchestra to the list of 2020 participants and to receive free materials to help promote your drive, including guidelines, a list of most-needed food items, hunger facts, and flyers to spread the word about your drive. By taking part in Orchestras Feeding America, your orchestra helps makes your hometown—and the world—a better place.
