This month, we are teaming up with Conscious Alliance (a nonprofit organization committed to supporting communities in crisis through hunger relief and youth empowerment) for a Community Pizza Box Series. Together we are working to raise $10,000 fill an entire semi-truck with food donations.
What is Conscious Alliance?
Conscious Alliance is a local network of creative people—artists, musicians, food makers, and fans—who use their time and talents to feed families in need. The organization began when its founders—avid concert-goers—imagined what might happen if everyone attending a concert brought something with them to help feed the hungry. And Art That Feeds was born! The first Art That Feeds Food Drive took place in 2002 at The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver with The String Cheese Incident. More than 4,000 meals were collected at that concert, and Conscious Alliance never looked back. These food drives now take place at hundreds of concerts and festivals across the United States, including right here in Colorado.
What’s the Pizzeria Locale partnership about?
All throughout March, our pizzas will be in a custom box designed by local artist, Monte Mitchell, who specializes in logos and typography—and believe us! The design is bold and vibrant, a display of blues with accents of magenta and yellow. It weaves various patterns with a botanical border, and adds icons that represent Conscious Alliance’s five pillars (music, art, food, action, and community).
ble at all four Pizzeria Locale locations in Denver, honoring the organization’s mission to end hunger in under served communities nationwide through a movement of artists, musicians, food makers and music lovers.
on March 24th, Pizzeria Locale will participate in a Pizza Night with Conscious Alliance at Wyatt Academy, in the Whittier neighborhood of Denver. There will be a drive-through at the school for families to come to pick up Pizzeria Locale pizzas for their own Pizza Night dinners.

Well, it translates into 20,000 meals that Conscious Alliance will distribute across the Front Range. fight hunger in community, and we’re thrilled to have on board with the effort. Together we’re dedicated to filling a truck full of food for our fellow Coloradans in need!
