MIKESCHAIR has partnered with Food for the Hungry and extended a challenge to its fans to get involved. The call to action came together when bandmates Mike Grayson and Jesse Hale watched people gather at the church across from their apartment each Thursday night. There would be music and ministry, but there was more going on. This weekly gathering was when the church opened the doors of its food pantry to people of the community who needed more then just fellowship. The guys were humbled and surprised by the hardship of people literally in their own backyard.
Seeing the need so close to home inspired guys to take action, and "mikestable" was born. Lead singer Mike Grayson says mikestable is just the start. "It's a vision and a dream of the band's to encourage our fans to not just donate an item of food, but act out the gospel," he explains. The band asks fans to get involved by bringing a nonperishable food item with them to each show. The food will then be contributed to local food banks and church outreach programs.
