Musically Fed is a 501(c)(3) that in "normal times" works with artists, promoters, management and venues naionwide to donate unused backstage meals to community organizations that feed the homeless, hungry, and food insecure. When the pandemic hit and the touring industry shut down, they shifted their focus to the many music industry workers that are without food or decent nourishment due to COVID-19. Many of the people they are serving are not eligible to receive unemployment benefits and most likely will be the last to return to full time work. They have been conducting drive-through food distributions around the country in Atlanta, Minneapolis, LA, Phoenix, San Diego, Nashville, Orlando, and Austin!
