For the sec­ond year, the Close to the Ground con­cert se­ries hosted by Fid­dlers’ Sons will be host­ing a Food Bank fundraiser show to­day at 8 p.m. at the Kaylee Hall in Pooles Cor­ner with spe­cial mu­si­cal guests Leon Gallant and friends.

With busy sum­mer sched­ules, it’s easy to for­get the need is still present for the ser­vices of the South­ern Kings and Queens Food Bank. In fact, this time of year the shelves are start­ing to get empty.

Host Eddy Quinn is en­cour­ag­ing con­cert go­ers to bring a do­na­tion of cash or non-per­ish­able food items to help the lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tion get through the sum­mer.

Mu­si­cal guest for the evening Leon Gallant is a lively and fun P.E.I. singer and en­ter­tainer who can be found per­form­ing regularly in Stan­ley Bridge and at Avon­lea Vil­lage in Cavendish.
