Gigs Doing Good: Musically Fed Partners with the Grammys to Feed Those in Need
Pollstar (02/14/23) Pittman, Sarah
Musically Fed collected uneaten food from the Grammy Awards' aftershow feast, and donated it to charity organizations in the Los Angeles area. As part of its third year working with the Grammys, the nonprofit collected food from concessions and venue suites at the awards show, and at the MusiCares Persons of the Year gala. "The good work [Musically Fed does] helps eliminate waste, drives awareness in our industry, and most importantly helps people in need. We are grateful for all the wonderful work they do!" said Casey Immoor, director of production and event operations at the Recording Academy, which presents the Grammys annually. The group partners with artists, promoters and venues to contribute uneaten backstage meals as well as artist and VIP catering to help feed veterans, homeless people and those facing food insecurity. Insight Management owner and Musically Fed founder Maria Brunner said the group repurposed vegetables and beef at the MusiCares event, and collected all of the leftover suite foods and unused crew food at the Grammys. She applauded restaurant and hospitality company Levy for providing food and beverage services, and venue operator AEG for its composting and other sustainability practices. The nonprofit's volunteers collected enough food to provide 1,048 meals, with donations going to The Midnight Mission, the Los Angeles Mission, Good Shepherd Center For Homeless Women' Hawkes Transitional Residence and Good Shepherd's Languille Shelter.
