Music industry personnel impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic are eligible to receive chef-prepared meals weekly starting Tuesday, April 20 through Tuesday, June 8 from the Touring Professionals Alliance Kitchen, a nonprofit that supports crew members working behind the scenes within the live music industry.

Participating restaurants include Chaatable, helmed by Chef Maneet Chauhan and Sunda, helmed by Restaurateur Billy Dec and Chef Mike Morales.

Those interested in receiving a meal through the program must register in advance HERE. Donate to the Touring Professionals Alliance Kitchen HERE.

Funding for these additional dates follows CMA’s previous Music Industry COVID Support (MICS) investment that supported five weeks of the Touring Professionals Alliance Kitchen in Nashville during February and March. Registrations for all prior dates quickly reached maximum capacity.

Established as a portal for key resources in the categories of food supply, health and wellness, and career services, helps to connect industry professionals with appropriate nonprofit partners offering critical support. Those in need are encouraged to visit the website and utilize the new chatbot feature to learn more about specific resources available.

The Touring Professionals Alliance Kitchen launched last year in partnership with The Lee Initiative and together, the organizations have served more than 8,500 meals in Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville and New York in partnership with local chef-driven restaurants. With this new program, the Touring Professionals Alliance Kitchen, the TPA aims to expand its program to additional cities in 2021. For more information on the relief efforts and for specifics on dates and locations for meal distribution, visit
