Vinyl Groov, a Harrisburg-based band that performs R&B, Motown, and old school funk, will be the final act at this year’s FoodStock Music Festival.

The fifth annual FoodStock Music Festival, Lancaster’s fundraiser to fight hunger, will be held at the Barn & Barrel Courtyard, new this year at the Mount Hope Estate & Winery, 2775 Lebanon Road, Manheim, on Saturday, July 28, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

During the event, concert-goers can participate in a Chinese auction, raffles throughout the day, 50/50 drawings, a craft show and sale, and a silent auction. Mount Hope’s wines, Swashbuckler Brewing Company beers, Lancaster County Ciders, soft drinks, and food will be available for purchase.

FoodStock president Tom Hayden was driven to produce such an event through his love of music, and his work with the U.S. Postal Service. Seeing how successful the Stamp Out Hunger food drive has been these past many years, Hayden was inspired to do something further.

In Pennsylvania, one in eight people — including one in six children — struggle with hunger according to feedingamerica.org. In Lancaster County, approximately 59,000 residents, including one in five children, go hungry on a regular basis. Additionally, those depending on food pantries are coming from all walks of life. Looking at the bigger picture, food insecurity not only affects these unfortunate individuals; it can have a negative impact on the entire community.

The Music Festival, FoodStock’s largest annual fundraiser, features a the following line-up:

  • 11 to 11:20 a.m. – Rob Reese
  • 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra
  • 12:45 to 2 p.m. – Hydroponic Philharmonic
  • 2:15 to 3:30 p.m. – Steel Radiance
  • 3:45 to 4:45 p.m. – The Benjamin Vo Blues Band
  • 5 to 6 p.m. – Vinyl Groov
