FARGO — A local nonprofit is hosting a concert to raise money to fund its mission to eliminate food insecurity in the Fargo-Moorhead community.

Lunch Aid was founded in 2019 by marketer Kari Lugo and math professor and musician Jason Boynton; the organization has raised more than $65,000 since its founding.

The organization is teaming up with TLC Cleaning and Fargo Brewing Company to present Lunch Aid 22 on Sept. 24. The event will feature live performances by Quarterly, Hiahli, Heatbox, The Jensen Sisters, The Knotties, and DJ AP.

“As humans, it’s our shared responsibility to care for one another. Lunch Aid exists for that very reason so that we can 'help people feed people' and give back to the community we live in," Lugo said in a press release about the event.

This is the fourth year the organization is hosting a benefit concert, and the funds raised this year will benefit Fargo Public Schools Foundation, Heart n Soul Community Café, The Neighborhood Church, and Youthworks of North Dakota.


Doors open at 5 p.m. at The Hall at Fargo Brewing Company. Tickets for the all ages show are on sale now and cost $20 if purchased prior to the event. The price goes up to $25 at the door.
