LUNCH concert to help feed hungryBy Patricia Ann Chaffee
BRADFORD – The LUNCH ensemble will be getting
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
“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
