The "Conscious CanSculpture" will help draw attention to the relationship between hunger and the environment and will also generate approximately 40,000 additional cans of food (specifically, 8 varieties of "all natural beans") to be donated to the local Rothbury, MI community as part of the ROTHBURY Food Drive hosted by Conscious Alliance. ROTHBURY's open forum for discussion on environmental and social issues and dedication to giving back to the community makes this event an ideal locale for such a unique and influential endeavor.
"As a company that has long believed in the benefits of natural and organic food products and the importance of giving back to the local community, we are pleased to partner with another like-minded organization such as Conscious Alliance to increase the positive impact of our efforts," said a Whole Foods Market® spokesperson.
Conscious Alliance, who began their mission of delivering food relief to impoverished U.S. Indian Reservations and fighting hunger in America by hosting food drives at concerts, is the ideal organizer for the ROTHBURY Food Drive and CanSculpture initiative. This "artistic expression with a purpose" will encourage festival attendees to donate food items to the ROTHBURY Food Drive which will directly benefit the Muskegon, MI Shiloh Tabernacle grocery relief program and the Word of Life PPHC Food Distribution Center of Oceana County, MI.
Attendees who donate 10 non-perishable food items to the ROTHBURY Food Drive will be given a limited edition ROTHBURY/Conscious Alliance rock art poster by rock artist Jeff Wood. Fans who donate 20 or more non-perishable food items will receive the same free poster in 3-D. There will be a drop off point located at the festival entrance where donations will be collected.
On July 4th weekend 2008, ROTHBURY emerges as a new American celebration. Hosted at the one-of-a-kind Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan on July 3- 6, 2008, the four day, environmentally sustainable music and camping festival promises to be an inspiring cultural assembly. This celebration of music, art, and action will harness the unique energy of the live music community into a durable social movement toward an important cause: Climate Change and Clean Energy Alternatives. In addition to a diverse and stellar lineup of bands including Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, John Mayer, 311, Phil Lesh and Friends, Primus, Thievery Corporation, Snoop Dogg, Modest Mouse, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Gov't Mule, Slightly Stoopid, STS9, Colbie Caillat, Rodrigo y Gabriela and many, many others, ROTHBURY will host an Energy Fair and an Environmental Think Tank featuring curator Dr. Stephen Schneider.
