Strengthen community connections and prevent food from going to landfill by sharing in a free meal! 

Montrose Community Cupboard (MCC) and Montrose Township Group (MTG), supported by Yarra Ranges Council, will host a Music and Meals afternoon in the Montrose Town Centre in June and August. 

About the meal 

MCC volunteers will prepare and serve a delicious two course meal to the community, free of charge, while Corn Nut Creek (a local folk band) performs for the community. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend, places are limited so please register to attend in advance. 

Doors open at 12pm, and meals will be served shortly afterwards. Final meals will be served at around 2:30pm. Vegetarian/gluten free options will be available. 

There will be a Kids Corner with games as well as fresh bakery bread to take home and possibly some produce items too! 

These meals are entirely free, but if you'd like to give back to the community, we ask that you bring a non-perishable food item that we will use at a future meal 😊

We hope to see you there! 

About the music

Sun 23 Jun, Corn Nut Creek

Corn Nut Creek (USA/AU) are storytellers with moving songs that weave traditions of Appalachian and Celtic music with a unique chamber-folk style. With lush harmonies, intricate clawhammer banjo playing and a lilting fiddle, their songs capture the significance of sisterhood as well as a deep connection with the natural world. 

 At the end of 2023, they released their first full-length album 'Hearts in Bloom'. The self-titled song ‘Corn Nut Creek’, from the album came in one week after its release at #6 in the AMRAP Australian Community Radio Charts and remained in the top 10 for two consecutive weeks. ‘Once Again’, also from ‘Hearts in Bloom’ , was recently announced as a semi-finalist in the 2023 International Songwriting Competition as well as being listed as a semi-finalist in the Unsigned Only Music Competition.   

Reviews

“Hearts in Bloom is a feast for the ears, every track combining intoxicating sound combinations, beautifully interwoven into masterfully crafted songs.” -Mandy Stefanakis, The Music Trust
