Conscious Alliance Food Drive
Wakarusa and The Conscious Alliance are proud to announce that we will once again be hosting an ‘Art That Feeds’ food drive to benefit the local community. All patrons that donate 20 nonperishable food items will receive a FREE Wakarusa Music Festival 3D Lenticular limited-edition poster by Michael Boyer.

All food donations will be collected at the Conscious Alliance “Art That Feeds” Gallery at The Midway; your festival program will denote the location. Donations will benefit the Arkansas Food Bank.
The Conscious Alliance always encourages food donations to be low-sodium and health oriented products. Organic food donations are especially encouraged. Ramen Noodles will NOT be accepted for the free poster.
Thank you for your continued support in feeding the hungry everywhere the music plays!

About Conscious Alliance
Conscious Alliance is a Boulder, Colorado based national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to the distribution of much-needed food to impoverished communities across the United States. Operating through ongoing, grassroots food collection and hunger awareness programs throughout the U.S. – mostly by organizing food drives at concerts and music events – donations to Conscious Alliance benefit America’s local food pantries and economically isolated Native American reservations.
Since their first event in 2002, Conscious Alliance has hosted hundreds of food drives at music festivals including Bonnaroo, Power to the Peaceful, and Wakarusa, and at concerts by artists such as The String Cheese Incident, STS9, Phish, Jack Johnson, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Dave Matthews, Phil Lesh, and many others. Through these collaborations, Conscious Alliance has been able to collect and distribute enough food to provide over 1,164,000 meals to people in need.
In 2010, Conscious Alliance expanded their focus to include not only emergency food relief, but social development work on reservations as well, with several projects directed toward Native American youth that are intended to help the younger generation develop and uphold a strong relationship to their community and culture.
