Local residents can help connect Louisville’s youth to healthy, sustainable food and enjoy the musical talents of two of Louisville’s up-and-coming artists, Justin Lewis and Reading Group, at 8pm on Thursday, February 23rd at The Bard’s Town.
The odd musical pairing of Justin Lewis’s acoustic, singer-songwriter style with Reading Group’s gritty pop-punk sound is a result of their shared enthusiasm for the work of The Food Literacy Project. “We are so excited about doing this,” said Reading Group’s front-lady Lacey Guthrie, “we all support The Food Literacy Project and wanted to do what we could to help them.” Justin Lewis likewise commented, “It’s pretty great that I get to help an organization which makes such a positive impact in the community by playing my music.”
All proceeds from the evening will benefit The Food Literacy Project, which provides experiential education programs that create opportunities for young people to have positive experiences with fresh, healthy food in their outdoor classroom at Oxmoor Farm.
The concert is all-ages and will be at The Bard’s Town, located at 1801 Bardstown Rd. There is a suggested donation of $4.
