Lesh Food Drive

From JamBase:


Phil Lesh and the Conscious Alliance ( are proud to announce a very special series of food drives for the City Harvest Food Bank of New York City ( during Phil Lesh & Friends' upcoming Beacon Theatre and Hammerstein Ballroom shows. With hunger in the U.S. and New York City at an all time high, let's accept our "Response-Ability" as a community to do something about it.

At all eight NYC concerts Conscious Alliance will be offering one panel of the limited-edition 8-panel poster series by famed rock artist, Stanley Mouse (, to each of the first 500 patrons that donate ten non-perishable food items. Donate ten items for each panel, or 80 for the entire set to receive all eight panels, at any show along the run.

Donation bins will be located outside of the main entrance to the Beacon Theater and Hammerstein Ballroom, where a Conscious Alliance volunteer will be on hand to exchange one poster redemption voucher for every ten non-perishable food items donated. The vouchers can be redeemed at the Conscious Alliance table inside each venue at any time during or after the shows. Signed and numbered posters will also be available at the Conscious Alliance table for designated monetary donations.

In summer 2004 the Conscious Alliance collected nearly 20,000 pounds of food donations for America's Second Harvest Food Share Affiliates ( while hosting 37 food drives along the Dead's 2004 Summer Tour. Conscious Alliance's collection goal along this NYC run is 10,000 pounds over the eight shows.

Conscious Alliance strongly encourages all non-perishables food to be low-sodium, health food oriented products. Please note that they cannot accept RAMEN NOODLES.
Thank you for your continued support in feeding the hungry everywhere the music plays!
