Percussion show comes to Food Bank of Lincoln to ‘Stomp Out Hunger’

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Food Bank of Lincoln was filled with steady beats Wednesday as the Lied Center presented “Stomp Out Hunger.”

Six dance studios participated in a two-week food drive, with some collecting donations for even longer.

On Wednesday, the cast of “Stomp,” which is on a North American tour, performed the grand finale by playing the food bank — in more ways than one.

The group is known for drumming on their bodies and ordinary objects, and at the food bank, they beat buckets, pallets and more.

“When you’re walking down the side of the road, and you might be in a neighborhood with concrete and grass and mailboxes, there’s not much to drum on,” cast member Jordan Brooks said. “You walk into a warehouse, a food bank, and it’s pretty much a playhouse to make music out of.”

Food Bank CEO Michaella Kumke said that after the performance, she’ll never look at the warehouse the same way again.
