This week the 5th Annual Harvest the Music concert series kicked off at Lafayette Square with a great concert by Los Po-Boy-Citos and the Iguanas. The square was hopping with people enjoying the beautiful fall-like weather, gathering with friends and supporting Second Harvest Food Bank.
September is Hunger Action Month, and while the food bank is usually busy talking about hunger in our community throughout the month, this year things were delayed a little because of Hurricane Isaac. Second Harvest has been operating in disaster response mode since August 31 and to date has distributed just over 1.5 million pounds of food in the areas impacted by Hurricane Isaac. Through Harvest the Music this year, we will talk about the HUNGER issues affecting south Louisiana and how to use your voice to “Speak out against hunger.”
Wednesday night, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was aglow in ORANGE to support the kick-off of the Harvest the Music concert series and to put HUNGER in the spotlight. The first concert was a big success and this week Dr. John is sure to draw a huge crowd for a great cause.
