Since the summer of ’95, local organizers at Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank have helped coordinate and host the production of the revered annual Pittsburgh Blues Festival.

This year, they’re bringing forth a new twist as the event is transformed into a day-long benefit concert–newly dubbed the Feed More Festival.

The change of name also comes with a change of scenery, as organizers continue striving to merge their mission of feeding those in need with audience entertainment.
