The GSO partnered with the Atlanta Community Food Bank for “Orchestras Feeding America 2012.” This program has provided over 350,000 pounds of food to communities across America in the past 3 years, with 250 participating orchestras representing all 50 states.
Food and monetary donations were accepted at both of the GSO Holiday Pops Concerts on December 8th at the Murray Arts Center of Mount Paran Christian School.
More than one in every four Georgia children – 28.3% of our children – live in food insecure households, meaning that they don’t always know where they will find their next meal.
Bill Bolling, Executive Director of the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) had this to say:
“The Atlanta Community Food Bank is very excited to work with the Georgia Symphony in its ‘Orchestras Feeding America Food Drive’ holiday program. We are encouraged that the Symphony Board has embraced this opportunity and that the Symphony audience continues to support community efforts to help their neighbors in need.”
