Founded in 2003, Singing Out Against Hunger was created to provide nutritious food for our neighbors in need and to raise awareness of their ongoing plight. In cooperation with local merchants, volunteer musicians, and civic-minded people, Singing Out Against Hunger raises thousands of dollars each year through free musical events, raffles, and donations. “We believe that self-expression, through music and the arts, a volunteer spirit, and the talents of individuals will help to rid the East Bay communities of hunger”.
Since their inception, SOAH has raised more than $165,000 and has provided over 100,000 pounds of food to community food banks and suppliers. Their impact has aided over 3,500 households and over 5,000 individuals in the East Bay area.
Each year, Singing Out hosts free, local concerts for the enjoyment of the community, while raising money and showcasing local merchants & musicians. This year, SOAH will be hosting their free concert series at Evelyn’s Drive-In, as well as events at The Sakonnet Collective, Coastal Roasters, Art Cafe and South Shore Beach just to name a few venues. “You may think that food insecurity isn’t a factor in the neighborhood that you live in, yet 1 in 6 children are living in poverty right here in Rhode Island”. Hunger affects the old, the young, single individuals & family’s alike. Come support this grassroots organization, enjoy an afternoon of fun, all for an amazing cause!
