Moved by recent reports that poverty and hunger have risen in the current Recession, a group of New England Conservatory artist faculty, students and alumni, headed by violist Kim Kashkashian, have united to present a chamber music concert series to benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank. “Price of admission” to the concerts will be a donation of non-perishable food items or a check to the GBFB.
We walk amid the hungry. They’re our friends and neighbors. The Food Bank is a trusted resource for local food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, youth programs, senior centers and day-care centers. Join the movement that turns music into food by donating at the concert. A standing- room only crowd at the January concert contributed the equivalent of 5,000 meals to The Food Bank. No tickets are required. Food, cash or check donations at the door help fight hunger in Boston.
