The benefit concert is part of Feeding America’s Hunger Action Month and will be on September 29th at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Tickets for “Rock a Little, Feed a Lot” are on sale now at www.ticketmaster.com
“It is so important for everyone across the country to dare to be conscious and aware of the struggles of those around them-even if those struggles are not the same as their own. Feeding America does just that, and it’s a great privilege for me to unite with them in their cause,” said Crow.
Sheryl Crow and Ben Harper recorded an original song about hunger in America for Hunger Action Month. Proceeds of the concert and the original song will go to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank.
There are 1.2 million hungry people in Los Angeles – that equals 1 in 8 people. The LA Regional Foodbank services 1 million pounds of food to hungry people each week.
