Rock a Little, Feed a Lot
Celebs confirmed to be a part of the event include David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and others. Adam Shankman, producer and director of "Step Up," "Hairspray," "Bringing Down the House," and "17 Again" is directing the event. Proceeds of the concert will go to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank and Feeding America.
"It is so important for everyone across the country to dare to be conscious and aware of the struggles of those around them—even if those struggles are not the same as their own. Feeding America does just that, and it's a great privilege for me to unite with them in their cause," said Crow.
"Rock a Little, Feed a Lot" is one of many initiatives in the works for Feeding America's Hunger Action Month and will benefit both Feeding America and its local member, the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. Hunger Action Month, formed to help those in need, bloomed from a day of service into a month-long campaign as the economy has taken a turn for the worse and the demand for food assistance has increased.
"Many Americans are unaware of the great demand for food assistance throughout the country. The need for food assistance nationwide has increased 30 percent throughout the last year and in many communities the increase is much higher," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America. "We are excited to team up with so many talented artists to shed light on Hunger Action Month and the issue of hunger in America."
"We are so grateful for the generous support of these artists -- and residents of Los Angeles -- for their time and efforts to raise awareness about hunger in America," said Michael Flood, President & CEO of the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. "The agencies we serve are experiencing unprecedented demand for food assistance and this event will help shine the bright spotlight of the entertainment community on the issue of hunger in America."
