CSU Nutrition Center receives donations, new name
Today the CSU Nutrition Center will be renamed the Kendall Anderson Nutrition Center, after generous donations from Pat and Larry Kendall and Danette Anderson.
Both donors are major contributors to the university, whose gifts support the operations of the center.
Kendall has been a professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition since 1975 and is currently the dean of research for the College of Applied Human Sciences.
Anderson is a clinical dietitian at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver and a 1987 alumnus.
The center works to provide nutrition and diet counseling to CSU and the Fort Collins community.
It also works to provide the area with cooking classes and programs for obesity, diabetes and heart concerns.
Cans Around the Oval aims to out do 2009
The 23rd annual charity food drive Cans Around the Oval will be held Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the CSU Oval.
The four-week food drive, which began on Sept. 16, will conclude with the weigh-in of all the food donated.
This year the Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement office sponsored event aims to collect more that 90,000 pounds of food.
Cans Around the Oval is the largest one-day food drive in Northern Colorado.
Last year the event saw 13,000 students, faculty and community members collect 90,000 pounds of food, enough to wrap the Oval 45 times.
Donations go to the Food Bank for Larimer County and help more than 40,000 people who depend on the food bank.
