As a part of our 1908 Brands Giving Program, one of our 1% for the Planet partnerships is with a local Boulder organization, Conscious Alliance. They distribute food donations to communities in the US that are in need of hunger relief and food assistance. Hunger affects 1 in 6 people in the US, and as food makers we felt the need to step into a partnership that benefits our communities.
Together with our 1908 Brands Giving Program and Conscious Alliance, we are fighting childhood malnutrition on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and the Front Range of Colorado. Our partnership is critical to providing the next generation with access to health. To date, we’ve donated over $150,000 worth of food products to Conscious Alliance through our 1% for the Planet program. As of March, 400,000 meals had been distributed in 2019 and our team at 1908 Brands can't wait to watch that number grow!

Picking up large amounts of in-kind food and moving the food directly to kids in need through their schools. This way we move semi-loads of new and close-to-code food to underserved communities.
1% For The Planet
Approximately 72 billion pounds of perfectly good food ends up in landfills an incinerators every year. Conscious Alliance is recognized by 1% for the Planet because keeping this surplus from going to waste has the double benefit of fighting hunger and helping out the planet.
