  • Donate Food to Stamp Out Hungry

    May 12, 2016, 8:10 p.m.

    When I get hungry I go to the refrigerator or pantry and make a decision on what I want to eat. Chicken on turkey? Corn or cauliflower? Tea or water? I take for granted that when I open the door of the refrigerator or pantry that food will be inside. Far too many people don’t have the same experience when they are hungry. Their bellies grumble for food but their pantry is empty. Their refrigerator is not stocked. They don’t even know when or if they will have their next meal.

It only makes perfect sense that here is where we sit down and attempt to discuss the widespread legacy of Miles Davis.
