In 2016, the Downtown Fort Collins Business Association’s ‘Great Plates’ event raised over $87,000 for the Food Bank for Larimer County. The 2017 event is coming up, and they have a lofty goal of $90,000!  You love to eat, so make plans to enjoy great food for a great cause!

Downtown Fort Collins Business Assoc

‘Great Plates of Downtown 2017’ is coming up March 1-14 in Downtown Fort Collins. 37 restaurants will be participating in the fundraiser to benefit The Food Bank for Larimer County. For $25, you can get great dinner specials, and for $2.50 you can get great breakfast specials.  The idea it that since you are saving so much with these specials, that you will be more than willing to donate to the Food Bank for Larimer County; with each special, an envelope is provided to make your donation!

With over 30 restaurants participating, you are certain to find a place to take advantage of ‘Great Plates’; maybe this will be the incentive to try out a place you’ve been putting off.  Sonny Lubick’s Steakhouse for example, is setting you up with an awesome three course dinner featuring salmon or prime rib! Maybe you’d just like a little treat at Ben & Jerry’s- two scoops for only $2.50!

How much should you donate? You could donate the remaining amount that you WOULD have paid for what your dining on, or you could just make it real easy and just throw a $5, $10 or $20 in there. Keep in mind a $1 donation translates to $5 that the Food Bank for Larimer County can use to help the food insufficient of our area- so Eat and Give!
