The Community Alliance for Education and Hunger Relief is a partnership of CSU and many organizations. We combine our strengths to increase the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables available to hunger relief organizations. In the process, we provide formal and informal educational opportunities to the community regarding large-scale food production.

Focused on developing an innovative service learning program that integrates agricultural and STEM education with meaningful service and civic engagement centered on hunger relief in our community.
