Summer Food Drive Success!

On Tuesday, August 4th, the State Theatre in collaboration with Elijah's Promise held a community food drive to benefit the Elijah's Promise Food Pantry in New Brunswick, NJ.

And we are happy to report that it was a success!

The food drive—held during the concert, Harry Chapin: A Celebration in Song—was in honor of Harry Chapin and his dedication to the fight against world hunger. (Chapin founded World Hunger Year in 1975.) Many patrons attending the celebration, brought in multiple bags of non-perishable food items (including Costco sized items!). It was a very nice evening and we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of food that we received. Thanks for making a difference and providing a nutritious meal to those in need in the New Brunswick community.

The State Theatre is located at 15 Livingston Ave in New Brunswick, NJ. For information or to purchase tickets call 732-246-SHOW (7469) or visit Check us out on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and YouTube.
