Mary’s Place in Rockford Will Host Benefit for Local Food Pantry
For more than ten years, local musician Michael Whyte has been organizing an annual benefit for the Rock River Valley Food Pantry. The 2015 edition will be held on Friday December 11th and Saturday December 12th.
While the roster of performers isn’t quite complete yet, there is quite a remarkable list so far. These acts are all scheduled to appear at some point during the two days of the event:
jf gaziano & beat merchants
Law & Love
Banks Myers - featuring Michael Banks and Craig Myers of Fuse
The Rock River Valley Pantry provides food to those in urgent need. As a community based pantry they provide 3-4 days of healthy, nutritious food to men, women, and children every month. In October 2013 7,895 clients used the pantry. 40% were children and 7% were over the age of 65. They rely on food drives, fundraisers, state issued commodities, and grants to meet the need of those going hungry. During their last fiscal year they had more than 74,000 user visits and distributed 1,080,000 pounds of food. Every dollar and every can donated makes a difference to someone going hungry!
