Food Drive + Charity Auction for LA Food Bank at Amoeba Hollywood, Feb 27 - Mar 5

Posted by Amoebite, February 22, 2012 03:57pm | Post a Comment
LA Food Bank logoIn conjunction with our March Charity Auction, which will benefit the LA Regional Food Bank, Amoeba Hollywood is holding a food drive! Bring in non-perishable food items to Amoeba Hollywood from February 27th - March 5th and we'll give you a $2 off "Thank You" coupon for helping out.

The items needed most are rice, beans, peanut butter, canned meats, canned fruits, and canned vegetables.

The LA Regional Food Bank, whose mission is to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our community, began in 1973 in a garage in Pasadena. Today it operates out of a 96,000 square foot facility to provide food for nearly 900 sites including abused and abandoned children homes, battered women shelters, senior centers, local food pantries, soup kitchens, AIDS hospices, and more. 

You can help the LA Food Bank in two ways: bring a canned food item to Amoeba Hollywood from February 27th - March 5th and join us at our Charity Auction on March 3rd. 

On Saturday, March 3rd at 4pm, comedian Doug Benson will host our monthly charity auction and 100% of the auction proceeds will benefit the LA Regional Food Bank. We'll have a crazy array of items (see February's Auction Recap for an idea of the types of goodies we offer), and as always, Amoeba will match individual donations up to $1,000. With every dollar, the Food Bank is able to provide four meals. So every dollar raised at the auction will be doubled by Amoeba and will ultimately provide eight meals. That's a lot of food for hungry people!

Atlas SoundWe just confirmed that Bradford Cox (Atlas Sound, Deerhunter) is doing a very special DJ set at Amoeba Hollywood tomorrow - Wednesday, February 22 - at 6pm! He's in Los Angeles for two sold out Atlas Sound shows at the Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock and we were lucky enough to snag him for a DJ set ahead of those shows.

Atlas Sound is the solo moniker of Deerhunter frontman/provocateur Bradford Cox, so named since 1994 when a sixth-grade Bradford made recordings on a karaoke cassette machine bearing the words "Atlas Sound." His latest album, Parallax, is out now on 4AD.
