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.

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.
