Sounds of sharing: Event benefits co-op, center


Follow The Republic:


Columbus area residents are invited to come out and enjoy a night of music and spoken-word performances by local artists.

The fundraiser is a benefit for the Columbus Food Co-Op and Lincoln-Central Neighborhood Family Center, said SaraBeth Drybread, community outreach coordinator for the food co-op.

Activities begin at 7 p.m.

Saturday at YES Cinema, 328 Jackson St.

“This is another community opportunity to learn more about the co-op,” Drybread said, “and to come together and support community solidarity.”

From high-energy bluegrass music to food-themed spoken word, the event will feature musical performances by the Banisters and the Underhills, as well as spoken-word performances by Jan Lucas-Grimm and Matthew Jackson.

“It’s all about getting back to the origins of food,” Lucas-Grimm said.

Jackson hopes the evening’s entertainment inspires those who attend.

Guests can chat with co-op representatives, and membership applications will be available, Drybread said.

And, of course, there will be food.

The co-op will have food including vegetables, fruit, bread and cheese for a donation, Drybread said. There also will be concessions, beer and wine available for purchase.

“We were thrilled when this melting pot of great artists and two nonprofits could come together for a really fun night,” said Diane Doup, outreach coordinator of the LCNFC. “It’s truly going be a feast for the ears.”
