Artists for a Cause is a national nonprofit that helps visual and performing artists use their talents to support community improvement. This is the second year Artists for a Cause has presented the program in St. Louis, and the first year it's been offered in the newly renovated Grandel Theatre. Food collected by Dance for Food will be distributed locally through Operation Food Search and Food Outreach. The program is made possible by support from Monsanto and Wells Fargo.
