8th Annual Holiday Meal Delivery

« View Blog Archives

This Thanksgiving Season we will be hosting our 8th Annual Holiday Meal Delivery, taking place November 17-20, 2011.  Last year, Conscious Alliance distributed over 10,000 holiday meal boxes to Native American households on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana.

Our goal is to once again distribute over 10,000 meals this winter, and keep our emergency food storage on the Pine Ridge and Northern Cheyenne Reservations stocked throughout the season.

Many people are unaware of the conditions in these communities. On Pine Ridge, 97% of the population lives under the poverty level. The unemployment rate is consistently over 85%, due primarily to the extreme economic isolation of the reservation. Food insecurity is rampant.

The climate is extreme in this region of the country, with regular winter blizzards, and temperatures annually falling to -20° and lower.  In the winter, people make a very real choice between buying food and buying fuel for heating their home.

Conscious Alliance strives to alleviate the immediate need for the basic necessities of life, while simultaneously teaming up with community leaders to create possibilities for the future. As we provide food to the reservations, we are working with these leaders to inspire members of the community, with particular focus on positive youth outreach to empower the next generation.

Through your donations, there is an incredible opportunity to help bring food to the most economically isolated communities in our nation during the cold winter months.

This year’s holiday meal delivery is sponsored by:
