NSO Trip Works With Food to Power

A group of the newest Tigers spent their time during New Student Orientation serving Food to Power (formerly Colorado Springs Food Rescue). The organization knows that food is an essential source of everyone’s power to work, play, serve, and live. Their mission is to transform every aspect of our food system into co-powerment and equity. From food, to power.

Participation in NSO is a requirement of matriculation for all new and incoming CC students, including those who participate in other early arrival programs. This year, many new students worked with sustainability programs during their introduction to CC.
