Third annual Food for Thought campaign, “Will Sing for Food”

Sing for Food posterSome people will do just about anything for a cause.  In an effort to provide support for and awareness about hungry families on the Peninsula, one professor and two Christopher Newport University staff members will “sing for food” this Wednesday, October  27, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. in the Ferguson Center Music & Theatre Hall. 

As a part of the third annual Food for Thought campaign, “Will Sing for Food” offers the campus and local community a chance to come together for an evening of acoustic songs and stories focused on poverty, struggle and hope. Music selections will include classics like Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” and Paul Simon’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

“I’ve been there,” said Dr. Kip Redick, a CNU philosophy professor and one of the performers.  “More people in our community deal with hunger than we would like to admit.  But if we’re honest, all of us face challenges and need help at different times in life.  That’s why we’re singing - to encourage people to recognize the need in themselves and to be generous and kind to one another.”

There is a requested minimum donation of $1.00 at the door, with all proceeds going to the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula.  The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. and will conclude with a surprise guest appearance at 8:30 p.m.

More information about the Food for Thought campaign as well as a list of ways to participate can be found at CNU’s Center for Service Learning & Social Entrepreneurship website: http://service.cnu.edu.
