help LACO feed america by donating food at upcoming concerts

February 16, 2010

From now until the end of March, LACO is collecting food for the Orchestras Feeding America national food drive. We’ve partnered with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to take part in making a difference in our community.

Last year over 250 orchestras from all 50 states collected over 200,000 pounds of food for local communities. And just a dollar donation to our online food drive will buy four meals for families in need. There’s a big perk in this for you too: if you bring a grocery bag full of food to Baroque +, Hope, Westside Connections 2 or Family Concert 2, you’ll get a free ticket.

The most needed foods are:

  • Soup/Dry Soup
  • Rice
  • Powdered/Canned Milk
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Cereal
  • Peanut Butter
  • Beans
  • Canned fruit and vegetables
  • Tuna
  • Canned meats
  • Stew
  • Pasta
  • Fruit Juices

We cannot accept items in glass jars or bottles, unlabeled or dented cans, any open or resealed packaging, perishables, homemade foods, expired products, or non-food items.
Keep an eye out at our concerts from now until the end of March for our collection bins. To donate online, click here, then select “join a team” and “Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra,” then follow the directions.

If you have any questions, please contact Nick Norton at nicknorton@laco.org, or 213 622 7001 × 200. Thank you!
