FEED THE PEOPLE! ~ Live Music Event with the Quarantunes
June 6 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The PO Box will be opening the patio for an exciting socially distanced live music event to raise money for Rogers Park Food Not Bombs + PO Box Collective. Celebrated Chicago musicians will be performing as The Quarantunes: James Sanders on violin, Steven Hashimoto on bass, Brad Newton on congas, Thomas Klein on guitar, and “soulkeeper” Gerald McClendon and Linda Solotaire on vocals. The event will also broadcast on Facebook Live.
This event aims to promote our FEED THE POPLE! campaign on Go Fund Me.
Help Rogers Park Food Not Bombs and PO Box Collective remain community assets.
PO Box Collective feeds our soul and imagination through art and connection. Our neighborhood space for arts, community programming and resource sharing opened up just over a year ago. In that time we have welcomed hundreds of our neighbors for art exhibits, community meetings, teach-ins, art-builds, reading groups, clothing swaps, concerts, open mics and so much more.
Rogers Park Food Not Bombs feeds and nourishes our neighbors by reclaiming and redistributing wasted food, has been in Rogers Park for over a decade, and a PO Box partner since our founding, When the shutdown took place, PO Box shifted our space immediately into a hub for mutual aid. Now FNB has turned our space into a distribution site for safely packaging and delivering over 200 bags of groceries weekly to Rogers Park households, and all of the PO Box programming has been moved online until it is safe for us to host in-person events once again.
We know our neighbors will continue to have a need for art, connection, and nourishment and we want to be there! Because we don’t have in-person events right now, we need your help to keep our doors open. If you are able, please chip in whatever you can!
