In 2013, Brandon Glorioso and James Greeneltch, both members of the band Shadowed Star, created LiveHappyNotHungry, a fundraiser and series of benefit concerts to raise funds and collect non-perishable food for the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen at the Gettysburg Fireman’s Carnival. Brandon and James and their families, spent weeks going door to door, business to business, soliciting over $1,000 in donations and collecting hundreds of pounds of non-perishable food for the Soup Kitchen. The event was SO successful, they are holding it again at this year’s Gettysburg Fireman’s Carnival, June 24-27th, 2014 at the Rec Park Band Shell. All the bands and musicians performing are donating their time and talents to support the operations of the Soup Kitchen.

The Soup Kitchen serves a nutritious mid-day meal, seven days a week, year round. In 2013, an amazing corps of volunteers prepared and served 14,395 meals – an increase of 2,450 over the total for 2012. It would be impossible to meet this increasing need without the help of many generous partners. Whatever donation you can make is much needed and will be put to excellent use. Please join us! Come out and hear some great live music, enjoy all the food and fun at the Carnival, and help us eliminate hunger in the Gettysburg community!
