Music for Meals is a benefit performance with refreshments, silent auction, and prizes to support the opening of a new local food pantry.
A new food pantry is opening in Coralville to help support the need for local food assistance. Between the flood and faltering economy, the Coralville region is reporting a rise in need by as much as 15 percent from last year.
On February 20, 2009 from 7-10 pm join your community at the North Ridge Pavilion in Coralville for “Music for Meals” and enjoy traditional Irish music performed b The Beggarmen. They are renowned for their fierce playing of reels and jigs as well as for their elegant, layered renditions of beautiful ballads and slow airs. Opening for The Beggarmen will be soprano Dannye Frerichs and pianist David Evans performing Irish songs.
History of the new food panrty:
For more than two years five churches in Coralville have been working together to begin the Coralville Food Pantry. Coralville United Methodist Church, First Christian Church, New Horizons United Methodist Church, New Life Community Church, and New Song Episcopal Church have secured space in Coralville. Together, we can open the pantry doors once we collect enough funding to purchase initial food supplies and a freezer.
