River Valley Regional Food Bank
“What a wonderfully overwhelming response to the Conscious Alliance food drive at Wakarusa 2013! Festival goers donated over $7,000 worth of food — enough to feed 3,500 meals. With one-in-five in and around the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas struggling with food insecurity, and particularly with 28.5% of the children in the festival’s host county living in food insecure homes, your efforts could not be more essential or more appreciated. Continue in your art that feeds journey with godspeed.”

“I want to thank Conscious Alliance and Whole Foods Market for the contribution of top quality food products. Our warehouse in Ohio received a truck load on May 22nd.

Alameda County Community Food Bank
“Conscious Alliance was a dream to work with. We had never partnered with them before, but their reputation with San Francisco Food Bank was stellar so we were excited to work with them. Evan was especially great, as he coordinated all logistics and communicated information well in advance. We were astonished when the truck pulled into our warehouse with almost 3,500 pounds of food for the benefit of the hungry in Alameda County. We welcome the opportunity to work with Conscious Alliance in the future!”
–Angela Eichner / Food Drive Coordinator
Houston Food Bank
“I send you thanks from the Houston Food Bank. Even though it has been several months since you were here, you are always in our thoughts and prayers. We will never forget all of the work you did to help with disaster relief in the Houston area.
Conscious Alliance, you have made many people happy this last Thanksgiving. I even seen a few tears. One man told me thank you, thank you many times, but he told me, I don’t have a stove. Yesterday, I bought him a stove. He didn’t have a hot water heater, but he has one now. It’s people like you that makes it possible for these poor people to survive. I know it’s impossible for you to see the faces of these people when they got the food that you provide for them. I won’t try to explain, because I can’t, all I can tell you. it’s a very warm feeling. It was late at night when I finish delivering the turkeys and the food items, I got ate up by mosquitos and I was tired, but it was all worth it. Many blessing to you and you organization.”

Looks For Buffalo Foundation – Pine Ridge, SD
When we first met Justin Baker, he was a young college student studying theology. He came to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation on a spiritual mission. But he left here with a new mission…to improve the lives of our Oglala Lakota people.
With an estimated 80% unemployment rate, the majority of our members’ food consumption is from government issue commodities. This food, mostly canned and packaged goods, contain high amounts of fat, sodium, and carbohydrates. As a result, over 1/3 of our 36,000 members are diabetic. And without employment, many of our families here run out of food by mid-month.
Since Justin founded The Conscious Alliance, he has been committed to providing a healthy alternative to the fatty, starchy food provided here. The Conscious Alliance partnered with our Looks For Buffalo Foundation, has distributed food to create thousands of healthy meals across the Pine Ridge Reservation.
They have also become a huge supporter of our annual Thanksgiving “Turkey ‘N Trimmings” program and the Christmas Toy Drive program. With help from the Conscious Alliance, we distributed over 700 turkey baskets for Thanksgiving and over 1,000 new, wrapped Christmas presents to needy children (0-18 yrs.) in 2004!!!!
Additionally, The Conscious Alliance collects and delivers good quality used clothing which benefits so many families here. And through their fundraising efforts, The Conscious Alliance is generously donating a 22’x22′ heated garage that will be designated for food/clothing distribution here on our homeland! This garage will allow Justin and his team to bring larger quantities of donations to be staged and distributed here.
We are so grateful for The Conscious Alliance and their unwavering support for our Oglala Lakota people! And too the thousands that support his work, we say…
lila wopila tanka! (thank you very much)

Made With Love Cafe
“Among our major donors, Conscious Alliance stands out as our most dedicated ally. In November of 2005, when Emergency Communities began planning its first independent relief mission, a kitchen and distribution center in a suburb abutting the lower 9th ward of New Orleans, Conscious Alliance was there.”
