Who knew that we’d find such great A-PEEL by singing for the folks among the fruits & vegetables? On August 10, the SenateAires were blessed to share some music with the hard-working volunteers at the Marion Polk Food Share who work hard to prepare food for distribution to families and children who are food insecure. These amazing folks give of their time and energy to make sure that local organizations and distribution points have sufficient food to share in combating hunger. This is especially important during the summer months, when children don’t always have regular access to lunches at school – often one of their only sources of healthy food.
We sang some songs for the volunteers and staff, who seemed very happy for the break from their hard work. Our thanks go out to everyone at the Marion Polk Food Share for letting us come in and sing – and especially to the volunteers who work so diligently to help combat hunger. As members of the Oregon SenateAires, we are proud of our association with the Marion Polk Food Share, and blessed to be able to support their efforts.
We encourage more folks to support the Food Share directly and through our shows and programs. They are such a great organization that works hard to combat hunger. If you would like to find out more about the Marion Polk Food Share, you can visit their website here.
