ROXBURY TWP. -- Area residents are invited to enjoy a day of family-friendly music for the cost of canned food donations that will support the Community Foodbank of New Jersey.
“Foodstock 2014,” organized by Sound of Humanity, Roxbury Recreation, and The Roxbury Arts Alliance will take place from 11 a.m to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 30, at Horseshoe Lake Park, 72 Eyland Ave., Succasunna.
“For less than $10 – the cost of four 16 ounce cans of food – a family of four can help New Jersey residents who don’t have enough to eat and hear 10 different bands that are donating their time and talents to support this event,” said Larry Salomon Sound of Humanity organizer.
“All of the canned goods that will be collected will go directly to the Community Foodbank of New Jersey, which supplies more than 400 food banks in northern and central NJ.”
Among the bands that have volunteered to play for Foodstock 2014 are “Nicola” from New York City, “Iridesense” from Long Island, and “Outerbridge Crossing” from Sussex County.
“Each of these bands will play music that every member of the family can enjoy,” said Salomon. “The idea behind this event is to bring the community together for a good cause.”
This event is made possible by the support of local businesses: Aires Jewelers, Bank of America, Merry Musicians, The Powder Bar, and ShopRite.
The Community Foodbank of New Jersey’s stated mission is to fight hunger and poverty in New Jersey by assisting those in need and seeking long-term solutions.
“We will engage, educate, and empower all sectors of society in the battle,” the group states.
