Feeding the stars

by

Summer is full of such great weather that it’s hard not to be outside to enjoy it; but at the same time it’s also nice to relax and watch a movie. Well mark your calendar because there’s an event coming up that will allow you the best of both of these worlds. Thanks to the hard work and planning of The Beat Goes On, Princess Twin Cinemas, the city of Waterloo, 105.3 KOOL FM, KFUN 99.5FM, and the Food Bank of Waterloo Region you’ll be able to enjoy both the nice weather and a great movie!

Some of you may already be familiar with the 5th Annual “Music and Movie in the park” event; but for others, here is a little bit more information. This event is free with the donation of a non-perishable food item.  There are three different Thursdays throughout the summer at Waterloo Park when the event will be held. (Click here for directions or suggestions on parking.) So mark your calendars to attend one or all three movies!

Thursday July 21: Rango

Thursday August 4: Gnomeo and Juliet

Thursday August 18: Rio

Movies will begin at dusk, following a musical performance from a local artist. So don’t forget to show up around 7:30 pm to lay down a blanket or set up some chairs in the grass to listen to one of the featured musicians before the movie. For more information, please click here.

It’s a perfect night out, a much better experience than a drive in movie theatre, and a great way to support a family in need. While you make memories with your own family under the star filled summer skies, you can also pass on a helping hand by donating a few canned food items that someone will rely on to make a meal with later on.

Each canned item that is passed on to the Food Bank of Waterloo Region from this event will go towards supporting one of the 25 500 people who receive food assistance throughout the year. To see what’s in high demand right now, please click here. Although keep in mind any food donation is always appreciated. Each item goes a long way to help someone who is struggling to meet one of their basic needs: food.
