The Top 25 Great Deals of Great Plates of Downtown Fort Collins 2022
One of the most fun ways to support the Food Bank for Larimer County is to take part in Great Plates of Downtown. The 2021 event raised more than $104,000; this year's looks to raise even more.
Into its 17th year, the 2022 Great Plates of Downtown gives us the opportunity to check out 40 establishments offering $25 or $2.50 specials. The amount you're saving is your suggested donation to the Food Bank for Larimer County. One dollar donated to the food bank can provide two meals, so keep that in mind when you make your donation.
I have a friend that, before he moved, would really look forward to Great Plates so that he and his wife could go to Rodizio Grill, they do have a Great Plates deal. I like hitting up Coppersmith's, myself. What is your favorite annual Great Plate?
Of the 40 establishments, all offering Great Plates deals, I thought we'd take a look at the top 25 of them to perhaps help you decide on which to visit, since the event only goes through Monday, March 14, 2022.
