Fill The House! An Event to Benefit the Food Bank for Westchester

Now through Saturday, November 25, the Tarrytown Music Hall will be partnering with the Food Bank for Westchester and hosting a food drive. Please join us once again, as we attempt to “FILL THE HOUSE!” with holiday grocery bags. Together we will fill the Music Hall with food, music and our wonderful community spirit, helping 1 in 5 of our Westchester neighbors share the tradition of a holiday meal.


Each bag will provide a family of four with a nutritious holiday meal.  Our challenge is to collect enough bags to FILL EVERY SEAT in The Music Hall. The Food Bank for Westchester will be adding a turkey to each bag upon distribution, in order to make the holiday meal complete.

Westchester County has 200,000 people who are at risk of hunger or are facing food insecurity. The suburbs have seen a whopping 64% increase in poverty and hunger over the past 15 years. PLEASE consider contributing a bag of food in order to help us reach our goal. TOGETHER, we have an opportunity to offer significant help to our local community.

WHAT FOODS ARE NEEDED? Please see the list on our website. Each bag must contain the same 16 non-perishable items specified by The Food Bank for Westchester. Our local CTown supermarket will be happy to assist you and will have a special in-store display to make shopping easy. The estimated cost is less than $25.00 per bag.

Bags may be delivered to the Music Hall (already in process as of October 28th), when the Food Bank will have a truck parked on-site before our 8pm shows. Contributions may also be made during Box Office hours: Wednesday – Saturday from 12noon until 5pm, through November 25.

PLEASE, spread the word and encourage your friends, local community organizations, businesses, and residents, to collect Holiday Bags within their groups, workplaces, and neighborhoods…HELP US FILL ALL 843 SEATS!

We are also accepting donations on behalf of the Food Bank via our website. You may find the link to the Food Bank for Westchester campaign under our Donations tab.

Please join us on November 25, for TUSK – The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute at 8pm. We will be presenting the Food Bank for Westchester with the collected donations and announce a final tally of meals collected before the show.
