ABOUT
Rock CAN roll, Inc® is a volunteer, 501(c)3, non-profit, hunger relief organization and think tank whose mission is stock the shelves of emergency food agencies with HEALTHY nonperishables for people & pets.
 
Rock CAN roll® collaborates with rock concerts, schools, corporations, and private individuals to collect NUTRITIOUS nonperishable food (and personal items) for distribution to LOCAL emergency agencies and into the hands of children, seniors and families (and their pets)  who live with hunger.
 
Rock CAN roll, Inc® grew out of a love of rock ‘n roll music and a concern for people who live with hunger and in poverty. Their niche to beat hunger and  ease the burden of poverty is unique. Founder and President Aimée Holtzman says her vision for the organization is that rock CAN roll® “CAN” become like recycling. Just as people know to put their recyclables out each week, when they see the rock CAN? roll® logo on concert tickets and promotional materials, “FANS will know to BRING CANS” or any healthy and nutritious non-perishable food donation to that event.
 
It takes time to start a movement, but Aimée believes with help from those who ‘get it’, it is clear to see that rCr is a fast, quick and easy way to restock the dwindling shelves of emergency food agencies  throughout the country and throughout  the world with HEALTHY food for people and PETS!
