Fort Lewis College joins the national campaign for “real food”

Fort Lewis College is only the second college in Colorado to sign the Real Food Challenge (RFC) Commitment. To commemorate this milestone, the College is hosting the Real Food Chow Down on March 18th in the Student Union’s San Juan Dining area. The Chow Down showcases the RFC’s definition of “real” food, which is food that upholds social welfare, environmental sustainability, and physical health.

There, you'll find a quarter-acre garden offering up a widely varied harvest of home-grown organic bounty. There is also a three-season greenhouse, several hoop houses and cold frames, a compost facility, and a 100-tree dwarf apple orchard nearby.

On Lake Powell, learning and helping go hand in hand
