Bassnectar’s Freakstyle Aims to Donate Meals for Kids

Good music for a great cause! Bassnectar‘s nonprofit ‘Be Interactive,’ and Conscious Alliance have announced an effort to support hunger relief in the community of Flint, Michigan.

At Bassnectar’s Freakstyle 2019 event, they will be accepting donations aiming to send 35,000 meals during this Halloween-themed ‘Flint Brain Food Drive.’

“Our goal is to collect 5000 meals at Freakstyle—double what we usually collect at a Bassnectar
event,” said Justin Levy, Executive Director of Conscious Alliance. “We definitely can't do this
without a big effort from the community.”

After Freakstyle, Conscious Alliance and Be Interactive will hit the road from Grand Rapids to deliver donations to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan along with show donations will be an additional semi-truck.

“Years after the Flint Water Crisis, despite heroic activism and resilience in the city, lasting challenges remain. Bassnectar fans asked us to come together around the water crisis, and the opportunity is finally here.” says Lia Holland, Executive Director of Be Interactive. “Among their needs, this community lists food and water, and we are grateful to the inspiring kids and families of Flint for graciously welcoming our donation.”

Those who donate 20 non-perishable food items or make a suggested cash donation to the Flint Brain Food Drive will receive a limited-edition Bassnectar Freakstyle 2019 lunchbox, decorated with art by Tyler Nally & Nathaniel Deas.
