The Downtown Fort Collins Business Association is partnering with the Food Bank for Larimer County again this year to help feed people in our county. In 2016, we were THRILLED to announce that $87,000 was collected for the Food Bank for Larimer County during the 10th Annual Great Plates of Downtown event.

This year we have set our sites high with a lofty goal of $90,000. Patrons can make contributions to support the Food Bank for Larimer County.  Every donation helps- a $1 donation is equivalent to $5 worth of food.
