LUNCH concert to help feed hungry
By Patricia Ann Chaffee

BRADFORD – The LUNCH ensemble will be getting together again
featuring the music of Harry Chapin, for a Hunger Awareness concert.
The concert will take place at the Bradford Elementary School and
benefit the Bradford Johnnycake Center on Saturday, March 24, at 5 p.m., with a pre­show at 4:30. The event’s proceeds will be increased by the
Feinstein Foundation, a foundation set up by philan­thropist and humanitarian
Alan Feinstein. It is dedicated to teaching young people the value of
education and community service, and like the LUNCH Ensemble, committed to
combat hunger. He has donated millions of dollars to Rhode Island schools and
has pledged a $1 million giveaway to combat hunger through local hunger
agencies.
 “His challenge to elementary school students is to get them to do
community deeds,” says event Co-chair Kim Burrows. “They will do this through
the LUNCH concert.” The LUNCH ensemble, working with the music department, will be teaching  25 Bradford students the songs and program. The ensemble is made up of pro­fessional artists and musi­cians with a focus on art,  education and community outreach. Whatever money is raised by the concert, the Feinstein Foundation will  match it, doubling the benefit of their efforts. Half of the proceeds will go  to the Bradford Johnnycake Center and the rest to other area  organizations.

Donations of non-per­ishable food items will also be collected the day
of the event. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 children under 12 and are available in
advance at a discounted rate, and at the door. For more information contact
Burrows at (401) 207-2606 or visit www.lunchensemble.com
