The coolest thing that I've ever seen in the world of hunger relief is happening right now. Bob Dylan has announced that the US royalties from the sales of his upcoming album of holiday songs will be donated to Feeding America. The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is a proud member of Feeding America and we are super-excited about this partnership. Bob came to town recently on his tour of minor league ballparks. He played the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in July. Several Food Shuttle staffers went and reported back a great show. I had to miss it. I once drove 8 hours to see him on the Love and Theft tour when I was in college but couldn't make the one 45 minutes away.It would have been my 6th Dylan show dating back to the mid-90s.
But we'll make up for it here on the Behind the Scenes at the Food Shuttle blog. We'll keep you updated on any more news around the album and we'll be posting some Dylan clips via Youtube up until the release. And there are rumors circulating that we may try to work with one of our great downtown Raleigh establishments to have an event around the October 13 release. We'll keep you posted.
