Free Outdoor, Family-Friendly Concert to Benefit Food Pantry at Central featuring local band, Smoke Tuna in the Central Presbyterian Church parking lot.
Local acoustic jam band, Smoke, Tuna, is headlining a free benefit concert for The Food Pantry at Central on Saturday, September 18, 2021, at 7 pm in the parking lot of Central Presbyterian Church at 1260 Dauphin Street. The outdoor, family-friendly event will feature access to the playground for kids, a food truck, beer and wine for donation, and great music from a local band.
Formed in 2021, Smoke, Tuna is an acoustic jam band that could be described as a melding of The Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, and a bluegrass for beginners songbook. Bassist, Seth Cherniak says he jumped at the chance to play and raise money for the Food Pantry. “There are so many needy people in our area, and The Food Pantry at central is doing an incredible job helping those who are food-insecure.” Cherniak who also plays in Dial Street Band will be joined by guitarists, Trey “Colonel” Langus and “Guitar” James Ollis from MoonCabbage.
The Food Pantry at Central’s founding principle is to love all with no judgment. They do that by providing nutritious groceries to over 2,000 food-insecure and hungry families every month. Of the 7,000+ individuals served in August, 2,662 were elderly and 2,195 were under the age of 18. The Pantry distributes groceries every Tuesday morning in Partnership with The Alabama School of Math and Science, and delivers food through our partnerships with DoorDash, FEDUP Mobile, the Cathedral Place Apartments, The Ambitiously Him Her – King Foundation Members, Cathedral Square Apartments, and the Colors of Love Ministry. The Pantry is run by 50-70 volunteers each week, and its monthly budget of $20,000 is funded through individual contributions.
To volunteer or donate to the pantry, please go to loveallpantry.org or call 251-432-0591.
Big thank you to our sponsors: Gulf Train Brewery and Braided River Brewery!
