The Sixth Annual Concert to Feed the Hungry
On Saturday, June 17, 2017, Buddhist Global Relief (BGR) will hold its sixth Concert to Feed The Hungry in lower Manhattan, the heart of New York’s vibrant music and art scene. Buddhist Global Relief is a non-profit organization that is focused on programs — both local and global — that combat hunger and poverty. The 6th Annual Jazz Concert To Feed The Hungry on June 17th, 2017 will feature an incredible jazz and world music lineup that includes NEA Jazz Master/saxophonist Dave Liebman, the infectiously grooving Slavic Soul Party, and the Moroccan Gnawan ensemble Innov Gnawa!
Funds raised from the concert will go to support BGR’s many projects that combat hunger worldwide, in regions ranging from Cambodia, India, and Bangladesh to Ethiopia and Cameroon to New York and Detroit. These projects not only provide direct food aid to people afflicted by poverty and disaster, but help farmers develop ecologically sustainable methods of food production, promote the education of poor girls, and give women the chance to earn more to support their families. Here in the US, BGR funds the development of urban and home gardens in communities with limited access to nutritious foods.
So treat yourself to a fun-filled evening that combines great music with a chance to make a real difference in the lives of others!
