The Conscious Alliance and The Dead will be staging a large-scale food drive project in conjunction with this summer's Wave That Flag Tour. The food donations will benefit local America's Second Harvest Food Share affiliates and impoverished Indian Reservations across the greater western United States.
At every show this summer, the first 1,000 people to donate 10 non-perishable items will receive a free limited edition commemorative poster designed by famed Grateful Dead artist, Stanley Mouse!

Donation bins will be located outside of all main entrances to each venue. Here a volunteer will exchange a poster redemption coupon for your donation of 10 non-perishable items. Posters can be redeemed at the Conscious Alliance booth inside the show. The food drive will take place two hours before doors open until the beginning of the first set. Donations of low-sodium and health food oriented products are especially encouraged!
The Conscious Alliance is a grass roots 501 (c)(3) non-profit out of Boulder, Colorado that is working to help feed the hungry and impoverished across the United States. The approach involves staging food drives to redirect the abundance and generosity that exists in music, art and athletic communities. This approach has led to the collection, and delivery/distribution, of over 100,000 lbs. of donations since March of 2002. The goal is to continue running food drives until a million pounds of food have been collected and, from there, a million pounds of donations per year.
Please visit the official Dead website for venue information: www.dead.net and The Conscious Alliance for donation information. For more information on America's Second Harvest Food Share Affiliates please see www.secondharvest.org.
