All Faiths Pantry Presents Reggae For Food 9
The 9th annual Reggae for Food benefit concert, featuring Carlos Jones and the PLUS Band, Umojah Nation and Jah Messengers, will take place Friday, September 8 at Music Box Supper Club, 1148 Main Ave., on the West Bank of the Flats. Reggae for Food raises funds for All Faiths Pantry 501(c)3, an award-winning organization which delivers groceries at no cost to local seniors with limited incomes.
Carlos Jones has been bringing his positive vibrations to regional audiences for decades and his Peace Love and Unity Syndicate, now more commonly known as the PLUS Band, is one of the area’s most popular bands. Event founders Umojah Nation have been entertaining crowds in their Akron area base for a decade. Jah Messengers are local reggae veterans with their roots in Jamaica, and have been a source of positivity in Ohio since the beginnings of Cleveland’s reggae community.
“All Faiths Pantry is thankful to the bands for donating their time and talents to support our mission to deliver groceries to seniors in need,” said John Visnauskas, Executive Director of All Faiths Pantry. “We are reliant upon the generosity of others in supporting and attending Reggae for Food, which provides critical funds to our operations.”
Event sponsors that generously support this year’s Reggae for Food are: Cleveland Coffee, Franks Automotive, Root Café, First Federal Lakewood and The Anderson-Dubose Company.
Tickets are available in advance for $20 at www.musicboxcle.com, or $25 at the door.
