As always, there is no charge for the live music concerts. However, all who attend are asked to make a food or monetary donation to the San Antonio Food Bank. Since it started, the series has raised more than 934,742 lbs. of food for the San Antonio Food Bank. In the 2015 series alone, it raised 47,278 lbs.
In 2015, the County Line was recognized by the San Antonio Food Bank for raising enough food to feed over 1 million people since the series started.
“Live music nights at The County Line are the place to be for all hunger fighters,” says Eric Cooper, President and CEO, San Antonio Food Bank. “We are so very thankful to the team at The County Line for their effort and passion and making the Food Bank a beneficiary of this great concert series. For 15 years, two great institutions have come together with food, music and philanthropy to feed Southwest Texas.”
