September is Hunger Awareness Month, and the City of Palm Springs Office of Sustainability is partnering with FIND Food Bank to host a “Rock Out to Knock Out Hunger” Fundraiser and Dance Party Sept. 28.

The fundraiser will kick off at 7 p.m. at Bar in downtown Palm Springs, 340 Palm Canyon Drive -- and will feature rock tunes from popular Santa Monica based cover band “Famous for Nothing.”

In addition, there will be a silent auction from 7-8 p.m. and Palm Springs City Councilmember Paul Lewin will present a proclamation to Lisa Houston, CEO of FIND Food Bank, in honor of Hunger Awareness Month at 7:45 p.m. followed by the dance party at 8 p.m.

Guests will be asked to donate a $10 cover charge at the door and bring canned food items to help feed the hungry as part of the City’s month-long food drive in support of Hunger Awareness Month.

The City’s Office of Sustainability will also open the $500 Edible Landscape Grant Program to local Palm Springs partners of the food bank to plant fruit trees on their properties. The program is also open to city residents and HOA’s.

Now through the end of September, residents will also have the opportunity to help feed those in need by dropping off canned food items in the lobby of Palm Springs City Hall, 3200 E. Tahquitz Canyon Way, and the Palm Springs Public Library, 300 S. Sunrise Way.

Houston says a $1 donation equals seven meals while a $10 donation equals 70 meals.
