TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12

Eat. Donate. Strengthen our community.

First Bite prioritizes strengthening the community, just as much as it prioritizes elevating the Boulder County restaurant scene. New to the 2019 Boulder County Restaurant Week is “Two on Tuesday.” Two on Tuesday (November 12) encourages guests to donate $2 – or more – to their choice of five area nonprofits while dining at restaurants that evening. Corporate and private donors will also be making match contributions to the nonprofits.

Conscious AllianceFounded in 2002, Conscious Alliance is a nonprofit based in Boulder. We are a movement of artists, musicians, food makers, and music lovers on a mission to end hunger in vulnerable communities nationwide by bringing healthy snacks and meals to pantries and schools serving low-income students.

While we have always contributed meals to Boulder County food pantries (Community Food Share, Emergency Family Assistance Association, and Harvest of Hope), we realized the need and benefit of distributing directly to children through their schools.

We began with the three Boulder County Head Start centers in 2017. Today, we distribute to all four Boulder County Head Starts, twelve BVSD elementary schools, three BVSD middle and high schools, two additional low-income preschools in Boulder, the I Have A Dream Foundation’s program, Safehouse Progressive Alliance, and Attention Homes. So far in 2019, we have distributed over 140,000 meals to Boulder County children and their families.
