Here’s a look at some of this year’s promo materials for The Concert to Feed the Hungry, presented by Buddhist Global Relief. This is BGR’s 5th annual evening of world-class music dedicated to the struggle against chronic hunger and malnutrition. The all-star lineup includes Grammy-nominated pianist Fred Hersch, Martin Vejerano’s Colombian folkloric band “La Cumbiamba”, Brazilian percussionist Rogerio Boccato, and singer-songwriter Becca Stevens.
The BGR mission involves emergency food aid, the development of sustainable long-term methods of food production, the promotion of education for poor girls and women, and job training for women so that they may better support their families.
