Fill the Hall 2019

The Music Hall
28 Chestnut Street
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

It’s The Music Hall’s fifth year collaborating with Gather for the Fill the Hall Food Drive on Saturday, June 22. It is core to our mission to give back and we do that best by connecting through the arts and to one another.

Join us as we challenge the community to fill every seat in the Historic Theater with bags of food for Gather and their Summer Meals 4 Kids program during the fifth annual Fill The Hall Food Drive.

For over 200 years Gather has provided emergency food aid, personal care products, and education for healthy living to Seacoast residents. Fill the Hall benefits their Summer Meals 4 Kids program, helping to fill the gap when subsidized school meals are not available. They provide 10 meals a week for over 500 children on the Seacoast for the 11 weeks of summer. It takes more than 12 tons of food to do this. We want to get it donated in one day and we need your help.

Join us on Saturday, June 22 from 9am to 3pm to Fill The Hall with food or a monetary gift to help the people in our community who need it the most.

Coordinators are looking for community organizations, businesses, and residents to do food drives within their groups, workplaces, and neighborhoods to help fill all 900 seats.

Donors are encouraged to come into the Hall and place a bag on a seat. Alternatively, they drop bags off with volunteers who will be outside The Music Hall entrance at 28 Chestnut Street.
