NJSO Food Drive

Did you know 1 in 6 Americans don’t know where their next meal is coming from? You can help.

As a friend of the NJSO, you understand the power of classical music to enliven spirits and change lives. We invite you to join us in using that power to make an even greater difference in our communities—to feed the body as well as the soul.

The NJSO will collect non-perishable food items during the concerts below. They will be donated to neighbors in need.
