CSU donates to Weld, Larimer food banks

ARDEC, the CSU research farm north of Fort Collins, is home base for the Dry Bean Breeding Project. The two have donated the CSU bean harvest to local food banks for about 20 years. Northern Feed & Bean of Lucerne also contributed by cleaning the beans for consumption.
The Dry Bean Breeding Project is just one program in the College of Agricultural Sciences that donates harvests to local food banks. For instance, the CSU Horticulture Farm, also north of Fort Collins, donates organically grown raspberries, tomatoes and other vegetables to the Food Bank for Larimer County.
