CAM’s fans collect cans

CSU’s 28th annual Cans Around the Oval will be held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 22 on the historic Oval. The event is sponsored by CSU’s Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (SLiCE) office.

Mitigating hunger

Cans Around the Oval is an annual tradition, where students, faculty, and staff partner with community members, local media, and area businesses to raise awareness about the facts surrounding the issue of hunger, as well as raise food and monetary donations.┬áThis event is Larimer County’s largest single-day food drive. Watch this video for an in depth perspective of the amazing impact of Cans Around the Oval.

Last year’s students, faculty, staff and community members collected 63,713 pounds of food and $49,260 in donations. Cans Around the Oval helps more than 40,000 people who depend on the Food Bank for Larimer County.
