Canned food goods drive at Segerstrom Center for the Arts runs throughout Moulin Rouge!

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is joining in to host the Can-Can Canned Food Drive throughout the run of Moulin Rouge! The Musical.

The drive will help the Orange County Food Bank fully stock its shelves with canned food goods for those in-need. All patrons, attending Moulin Rouge! The Musical are encouraged to donate canned goods to help the nearly 20% of children in Orange County living in “food insecure” households. 

The effort truly puts Moulin Rouge! The Musical’s four values of Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Love into practice, while Segerstrom Center is excited to involve the community in one harmonious effort to cultivate compassion and reduce food insecurity throughout the county.

Along with the public, Center staff will exercise the musical’s core values, too, and contribute to the food drive by having an internal contest to see which department can collect the most canned goods. In August, during the Hadestown run, more than 2,000 pounds of canned food were collected. The Center is determined to beat that number and spread Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Love throughout the community.    

Moulin Rouge! The Musical runs from through November 27. 

Donation bins will be on-site provided by the OC Food Bank throughout the main lobby of Segerstrom Hall. 

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is located at 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa. For more information, visit
