Share Food Program also manages the National School Lunch Program for more than 305,000 children in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs who qualify for free or reduced lunch. Principal Horn Jennifer Montone, Associate Principal Horn Jeffrey Lang, and horn player Ernesto Tovar Torres perform. Musicians and staff from the Orchestra can also be seen volunteering on site to pack boxes of food for delivery.
