About Orchestras Feeding America:

The League of American Orchestras first joined forces with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, in 2009. More than 215 orchestras in all 50 states participated in an unprecedented coordinated effort by collecting and donating food to their local food assistance agency or food bank within Feeding America’s network of more than 200 food banks and 60,000 agencies. Since then, 450 League member orchestras have participated in the annual effort.

Orchestras Feeding America was inspired by the film The Soloist, starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr., and directed by Joe Wright. The DreamWorks Pictures/Universal Pictures presentation, in association with Studio Canal and Participant Media, was based on the true story of the relationship between Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez and Nathaniel Anthony Ayers, a gifted Juilliard-trained string player whose mental illness landed him among the homeless on the streets of Los Angeles. Featuring the Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Soloist is a testament to the redemptive power of music and a reminder of our connections to the most vulnerable among us.

“The story of The Soloist reminds us that classical music has the power to sustain spirits and change lives, even under the most difficult circumstances,” commented League President and CEO Jesse Rosen. “Our team effort with Feeding America and The Soloist gives America’s orchestras a way to use that power to make an even greater difference in our communities – to feed both body and soul.”
