Arts For Living: Artists Feed the L.E.S. is a virtual program to raise vital funds for our Food Access Initiative. The evening will be hosted live by Penny Arcade from Abrons Arts Center’s historic Playhouse Theater, which has, since last year, been transformed into a food pantry that serves 700 Lower East Side residents each week.

In response to food insecurity experienced by our neighbors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Abrons, in partnership with Henry Street Settlement and Vision Urbana, came together to meet the moment. Our Playhouse stage became a food packing and distribution center, staffed entirely by theater technicians, artists, and arts workers. To date, we have distributed nearly $700,000 worth of groceries to our neighbors.

Even with the end of the pandemic on the horizon, the crisis of food insecurity remains a significant threat to many New Yorkers. Every dollar donated will go directly into keeping our Food Access Initiative active for families in need.
