Dave Matthews Band Supports Local Farm in Plymouth Meeting

The Dave Matthews Band played last night in Camden and have another show tonight. For the past several years when the band comes into town they place an order with Maple Acres Farm in Plymouth Meeting. See some of the bands order below:

Why is the band not just hitting the local Giant? From Newsday.com:

Several years ago, Matthews partnered with Reverb, a grass roots outreach and education program, to encourage concertgoers to become more environmentally aware. Reverb works with touring bands, creating backstage greening programs with the aim of reducing the overall environmental impact of their tour.

Their program connects local farmers and food artisans to tour chefs. Matthews’ vision is fueled on the tour circuit by Dega Catering, a full-service concert tour caterer that has been feeding DMB like family for nearly two decades. Its assertion that “homemade food is one of the few comforts that you can enjoy on the road,” has afforded Dega an all-star touring client list: DMB, Bob Dylan, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Usher.
