We were also able to buy $12,000 worth of fresh food from the contributions of students, staff, families, community members and the Impala Board.

Special thanks to our grocery store partners at Albertsons, Safeway, King Soopers, Bella’s Market and to Exodus Moving for providing 1400 boxes, The Larimer County Food Bank, our custodial staff at PHS, the Staff at Poudre for all of their time and dedication, the folks of Fort Collins who an estimated 14,000 times handed a student a bag of food, Fort Collins HS Stu Co for planting the seed at Collins and of course Poudre students who put in hundreds of volunteer hours and made this happen.

Proud to be a Poudre Impala,
