About the Community Alliance
The Community Alliance for Education and Hunger Relief is a program of Colorado State University. Based in Western Colorado, we form partnerships unified under the goal of increasing the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. To this end, we:
- Increase community access to fruits and vegetables through our farm-to-foodbank program;
- Change knowledge of and attitudes towards fresh produce by providing hands-on learning on our farm and in our teaching kitchen; and
- Grow healthy communities by providing opportunities for civic service and supporting initiatives that work to decrease hunger and food insecurity.
