The Music Hall in Portsmouth teaming with pantry to help collect 'Summer Meals 4 Kids'


PORTSMOUTH - In one of its largest food drives of the year, the Seacoast Family Food Pantry is working with The Music Hall in Portsmouth to gather much-needed food donations.

On Saturday, the historic hall is open for stage and technical tours with visitors being asked to bring a bag of groceries.

The donated food is for the “Summer Meals 4 Kids” program which provides free meals for hundreds of seacoast children. For eleven weeks, while children are on summer break, they aren’t getting free meals through the school system. The “Summer Meals 4 Kids” program helps provide meals for those children.

“Our need is up 100% over last year,” said Deb Anthony, Executive Director of the Seacoast Family Food Pantry.

Every seat in the theater was filled with a grocery bag of donated food during last year’s “Fill the Hall” event. This year, organizers say they need twice as much food, if they’re going to provide for all of the needy families they serve in 11 communities.
