Food Fight Against Hunger to benefit local non-profits

COOKEVILLE – Hip Cookeville announces Food Fight Against Hunger, a rock music festival, to raise funds for two local non-profits that provide support to those suffering in need in Putnam County will take place on Father’s Day, June 20 at Red Silo. The seven-band benefit show begins at 3 p.m. and will feature a silent auction, a host of live music and food from The Pizza Machine.

The show is to benefit Cookeville Human Fund and Independence Again’s homeless outreach program Recovery Kitchen, both 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. These organizations provide resources and solutions to both our unsheltered community and those in a short-term critical bind which may lead to homelessness.

“This show will enrich your life while enriching the lives of others,” said Hip Cookeville Founder Blair Dudley. “The line-up will rock your socks off and will provide critical funding for these organizations that accomplish amazing things with no tax dollars.”

A silent auction featuring contributed works of art from local artists and items from local businesses will also be held online with the final exhibition and bidding the day of the event at The Art Jam directly across the street from Red Silo.

Enjoy live music performances from Jacob Roper, Jordan Anderson, Freeman Hindman, Raymund McConley, Shugga Momma, Sleep Nation and Naughty Input from 3 p.m. to 9:35 p.m. 

The music driven benefit, Food Fight For Hunger, is sponsored by Asylum Radio Network, Hip Cookeville, MECCA Music Fest and Hip Ctv, with participating vendor The Pizza Machine.

Monetary donations are currently being accepted and all proceeds will be split between the organizations. To contribute, visit
