A CONTINUED HOLIDAY TRADITION FOR LOCAL THEATERS: FIGHTING HUNGER IN AREA SCHOOLS
Dates: December 1st through 30th
A group of Central Florida theaters are coming together with Conway Cares to help children over the holidays. The collective includes Orlando Repertory Theatre, Orlando Shakes, Mad Cow Theatre, and Beth Marshall Presents with food drop-off locations at all four venues.For the third year, Conway Cares – a Servant’s Heart Ministry hunger solution – is receiving assistance from local theaters to ensure that children struggling with food insecurity are not forgotten during the holiday season. Participating theaters act as food collection locations from December 1 through December 30, during regular operating hours. Items collected will then be distributed to four area schools and discreetly delivered to the children each Friday. This distribution ensures these children, who often rely on school breakfast and lunch programs as their main meal source, have food to sustain them over the weekends throughout the school year.
Preferred food items are as follows:
- Granola/ Cereal Bars
- Fruit Cups/ Applesauce Cups
- Cans of Pasta with easily removable lid
- Easy Mac
- Juice Boxes or Pouches
- Single-serve Cereals
- Peanut Butter Crackers
- Canned Veggies with easily removable lid
All items can be dropped off at any of the above-listed theater locations during operating hours and during performance times.
