Enjoy arts, fight hunger at the same time

  • 0

Omaha Performing Arts, the Omaha Symphony, Opera Omaha, the Omaha Community Playhouse and Joslyn Art Museum again are partnering with ConAgra Foods for the Shine the Light on Hunger program.

This collaborative event features a food drive at five venues: the Orpheum Theater, Holland Performing Arts Center, Omaha Community Playhouse, Joslyn Art Museum and the Scottish Rite Theater. Patrons are asked to bring canned food and other nonperishable items to each venue when attending any performance Nov. 1 through Dec. 31.

All donations collected will support Food Bank for the Heartland. Last year, the performing arts organizations collected about 3,400 pounds of food, resulting in 2,800 meals.

In addition to the collection, informational exhibits promoting awareness about child hunger and nutrition will be displayed at the Playhouse, the Orpheum and Holland Center.
