Singer-songwriter's New CD helps feed the hungry

Singer-songwriter-farmer Laurie Lee Lewis

Who Will Feed The Hungry? A song, music video and effort by a singing farmer, to raise awareness and donations for food banks.

DEMING, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- September is END HUNGER awareness month. Harvest time and perfect timing for a song called Who Will Feed The Hungry? This June, when Northwest Washington singer-songwriter and farmer, Laurie Lee Lewis released a 17-song original country CD, The Garden Of My Soul, her goal was to get her 10th CD out,joking that “at 54, and a survivor of several concussions, you just never know how long you get!” As an independent artist on her own label since 1988, Lewis knows very well the challenges and hardships of the competitive music business. She equally knows the struggles of making ends meet as a farmer and having raised her daughter alone.

When Lewis placed her order of The Garden Of My Soul, she saw a vision of selling the CDs to raise money and provide food to the hungry. Researching Northwest non-profits, Lewis discovered Seattle's Northwest Harvest, who has been feeding the hungry throughout Washington state for 50 years. Trekking 90 miles south to Seattle to meet some of the staff at their modest church facility, where locals call “tent city” Lewis learned that Northwest Harvest provides foods to 380 Washington food banks, schools-in-need and serves 2 million meals a month. Northwest Harvest relies primarily on public donations. Witnessing volunteers sorting bins of donations for distribution, serving sandwiches in a food line and operating an on-site food bank, Lewis immediately knew this was her purpose for this long-awaited CD.

Upon returning from Northwest Harvest, now inspired to plant more for the food banks, while tilling up new soil, Lewis heard another song: Who Will Feed The Hungry? Lyrics that speak of the need, the actions of volunteers, praising the farmers and reminding the listener that Hunger Has No Seasons! A simple, beautiful music video of Who Will Feed The Hungry? has been released on YouTube as well as the MP3 available for download on Lewis' website. The proceeds are being donated to Northwest Harvest. No stranger to humanitarian projects, over her 28 years recording music, Lewis has helped raise funds and awareness for Cancer research, animals, Veterans, abuse, children's welfare and clean global water. “I have been donating food to local food banks for many years from my small farm. Being able to feed hungry people through farming and inspire through my songs, is soul food to me! As Helen Keller and Mother Teresa said, no matter how great or small, do something - it the greatest gift we have. This is my something.”

Aside from raising donation funds via sales of her new CD to support Northwest Harvest, Lewis has recently teamed up with Bellingham's Unity Spiritual Center, to hold a Food Drive drop-off day on Sunday Sept. 18th and has invited 30 statewide churches to join in, spreading the message that “donating time, food or money - makes a difference.” Lewis hopes this event will encourage businesses, groups and churches to collect and donate or volunteer to local food banks.
