Further KFOG will present BAY AREA FOOD BANKS with $200,000 Cash from 2014 benefit CD sale on NOVEMBER 12th.
KFOG PD JIM RICHARDS said, “The continued support of this project by the music community is impressive and humbling. These artists give their time to perform in our Private Concerts, then contribute the recordings to this compilation so that BAY AREA FOOD BANKS can provide a much-needed community service. The musicians, their managers, publishers and labels have all been generous and gracious. I’d like to thank them for keeping this worthwhile tradition alive.”
SAN FRANCISCO-MARIN FOOD BANK Exec. Dir. PAUL ASH said, “The amount of support the BAY AREA FOOD BANKS has received from LIVE FROM THE ARCHIVES over the last 21 years is tremendous. Not only in dollars, but in raising awareness about food insecurity to KFOG listeners. Meals bring people together, especially during the holidays, and this annual donation allows Food Banks to provide critical assistance and joy to thousands of families who are struggling to make ends meet.”
