North Carolina Symphony Soup-to-Go Drive for BackPack Buddies

  • Meymandi Concert Hall 2 E South Street Raleigh, NC 27601 (map)

Warm a child’s tummy by bringing “Soup-to-Go” to holiday performances at Raleigh’s Meymandi Concert Hall!


We are partnering with the North Carolina Symphony on a Soup-to-Go Drive to support BackPack Buddies at three of their holiday concerts.

BackPack Buddies provides 6 balanced meals and 2 snacks for 2700 children every week to enjoy over the weekend. Your Soup-to-Go donation ensures children have a warm meal this winter.

To show their thanks for your donation, the North Carolina Symphony will give you a coupon to save $20 on one of their January concerts.
