Help Orchestras Feed America!

The Boston Symphony Orchestra is holding a food drive tomorrow and Saturday (March 27 and 28) as part of a national initiative "Orchestras Feeding America" through which more than 230 orchestras representing all 50 states will be gathering food to support local organizations. The BSO will support the Greater Boston Food Bank. So if you have some extra canned goods, head over to Symphony Hall and help!

Receptacles for the BSO’s food drive at Symphony Hall will be available at both the Massachusetts Avenue and Cohen Wing entrances, before concerts and during concert intermissions on March 27 (1:30 p.m. start time) and March 28 (8 p.m. start time). You can drop food items off between 12:30-1:30 p.m. on March 27, and between 7 and 8 p.m. on March 28.

Cash donations to the food drive can also be made by visiting the BSO’s website.
