Manchester, TN – Bonnaroo Music Festival and non-profit organization Conscious Alliance announce the 6th Annual Bonnaroo Food Drive benefitting the Good Samaritan Food Pantry of Manchester, Tennessee.
Last year’s Food Drive brought in 7,000 pounds of food donations for Tennessee’s Coffee County. This year’s goal is to collect 10,000 pounds or more.
With America’s food banks experiencing an all-time inventory low, there has never been a better time to participate in the Bonnaroo Food Drive. Bonnaroo and Conscious Alliance are calling on all festival attendees to donate to this important cause. As an incentive, the first 2,000 patrons who donate 10 non-perishable food items will receive a free limited-edition Bonnaroo poster created by renowned rock artist, Michael Everett (www.Meverett.net).
Food Drive collection tents will be located outside of the main entrances to the concert area and will be depicted on the Bonnaroo guide map, given to all attendees upon arriving at the festival grounds. At these locations, Food Drive volunteers will trade the first 2000 participants “poster redemption vouchers” for food donations. The vouchers can be exchanged for this year’s poster at the Conscious Alliance “Art That Feeds” galleries located inside the Planet Roo vending area and just outside of the Archway entrance into the main stage area.
Conscious Alliance always encourages food donations to be low-sodium and health food oriented products. “Organic” food donations are especially encouraged. Ramen Noodles cannot be accepted for the free poster.
