Lynguistic Civilians, Vermont’s premier hip hop band has released a new album, Gratified Existence and they’re taking this opportunity to raise money for the Vermont Foodbank.

“We love giving back. We all have families that we care deeply about, and we wouldn’t want to see any of them go hungry,” said Brian Walsh, Lynguistic Civilians’ member.” By using our brand new, professionally recorded album, we are touring New England with a goal of raising $5,000 for the Vermont Foodbank.”IMG_5627

How are they turning music into food? The band has started a crowd funding campaign to raise money to produce their album. Twenty percent of all pledges made will benefit the Vermont Foodbank. And 20% of all albums sold will also come to the Foodbank. Attend a show, participate in a raffle and 100% of funds raised will come to the Foodbank.

“We are psyched that Lynguistic Civilians found us,” said Judy Stermer, Director of Communications and Public Affaris. “They are so enthusiastic about helping our cause—and they’ve made a real splash with their fundraising efforts. We are lucky to have them as partners in the fight against hunger.”

Before their next tour stop off, Lynguistic Civilians volunteered at the Vermont Foodbank. Band members helped pack food for Vermonters in need.
