Yet another reason to go to Rothbury
---be part of history! Whole Foods teamed up with the Conscious Alliance to help fight global hunger and poverty by donating over 500,000 pounds of food. The donation will be on display at this year's Rothbury Festival and will attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for "largest canned food structure". Festival attendees are encouraged to add to the sculpture and be part of history while supporting a good cause.
From the press release:
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.
