Nearly 7,000 lbs of food donated by fans at rock festival
For the third year in a row, Feed Our Children Now, an organization also dedicated to fighting hunger, teamed up with the Vans Warped Tour to donate food to needy community members. Attendees of the traveling rock festival's Long Island concert, held on July 9th at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, were given the chance to "skip the line" by bringing canned food donations to the concert. For every can donated, fans could skip ahead that many spaces in line. Nearly 7,000 pounds of canned goods were collected and donated to The INN and MOMMAS House, an organization that supports young mothers and babies.
