Also performing are singer/songwriters Omar Sanchez Omi and Michael McDermott, blues woman Liz Mandeville, Dave Specter and local bands Sixteen Candles, Boy Band Review, Wedding Banned and Twin Peaks.
Proceeds from the Feed Chicago Virtual Summer Fest benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository, which reportedly distributes the equivalent of 171,000 meals to needy people throughout Cook County.

Organizers say for every $1 donation, the Greater Chicago Food Depository provides three meals to needy people.
