Conscious Alliance & Sommelier Story. On this week's episode of Sharp & Hot, hear from Jordan Levy of Conscious Alliance,a Boulder, Colorado based national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to distributing much-needed food to communities across the United States, and providing long-term solutions to hunger by focusing on empowerment programs for youth in impoverished regions of the country. They operate through ongoing, grassroots food collection and hunger awareness programs, primarily by organizing food drives at concerts and music events. Later in the show, Emily shares an incredible story about her quest to become a master sommelier! This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.
