Hunger Drive Yoda

The Cleveland POPS with Carl Topilow teams with Orchestras Feeding America’s national food drive for fifth year

POPS concert patrons are invited to bring non-perishable food items to the orchestra’s Friday, March 27th concert at Severance Hall.

The Cleveland Pops Orchestra will be participating in Orchestras Feeding America, a large-scale national food drive involving more than 250 orchestras from all 50 states. Attendees of the March 27th Cleveland Pops Concert (La Musica D’Italia) at Severance Hall are asked to bring boxed or canned food to the concert, including dry or canned soup, rice, powdered or canned milk, macaroni & cheese, cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, tuna, canned meats, pasta, and fruit juices.

Over the past six years, more than 425 orchestras from across the country have collected and donated nearly 450,000 pounds of food through the Orchestras Feeding America National Food Drive. The project started in 2009. The food will be collected and distributed by The Cleveland Food Bank as part of their community-wide “Harvest for Hunger” campaign.
