Arts Against Hunger food drive in Annapolis


canned-food-driveSeveral Annapolis arts organizations – along with Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and Hard Bean Coffee & Booksellers – are hosting a food drive to benefit Anne Arundel County Food Bank. The “Arts Against Hunger” campaign runs through Dec. 17, 2012.

“There are 25,000 adults and children in our community who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. That is unacceptable,” says Katharene Snavely, Executive Director of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra.

  • Annapolis Symphony Orchestra
  • Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts
  • Live Arts Maryland
  • Annapolis Opera
  • Ballet Theatre of Maryland
  • Peabody Preparatory
  • Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra
  • Hard Bean Coffee & Booksellers

The public is encouraged to support the “Arts Against Hunger” campaign by dropping off canned goods and non-perishable foods at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, located at 801 Chase Street, Annapolis. Most needed items include:

  • Canned meat, ham and chicken
  • Peanut butter
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Canned stews
  • Canned tuna, salmon and sardines
  • Dried canned beans
  • Oatmeal
  • Multigrain crackers
