The drive is part of CMA’s ongoing Music Industry Covid Support (MICS) initiative and follows several previously announced nonprofit investments funded through $3 million long-term COVID-19 commitment that began in early 2020. Additional nonprofit investments through the MICS initiative include Music Health Alliance, MusiCares, Notes for Notes, Porter’s Call, The Store and Touring Professionals Alliance Kitchen. 

Musically Fed typically works with artists, promoters, management and venues to donate unused backstage meals to community organizations that feed the homeless, hungry and food insecure. In response to the health crisis, Musically Fed stepped up to the plate when it saw its own industry in need of assistance. Mobilizing in cities heavily populated with music professionals, Musically Fed has and will continue to host drive-thru events where cars will be able to receive food supplies. Musically Fed food drive-thrus in Nashville are set to be held March 13 and March 27. Individuals in the live entertainment/music industry wishing to register should contact or call 480-951-1882. To learn more, visit
