Last Updated: 88 days ago
BOULDER, Colo. - Nearly 2,000 meals earmarked for Saturday's now-postponed University of Colorado in Boulder football game have been redirected to first responders and flood-affected residents of the university.
CU's concessionaire, Centerplate, donated the food for Saturday's game, which was delivered prior to the postponement of the CU-Fresno State meeting.
More than 400 meals will be served and delivered Saturday to first responders and workers cleaning up the city of Boulder, and the remaining 1,200 meals are being offered to residents of CU's Family Housing at Folsom Field.
Associate Athletic Director David Plati said the athletic department as well as the football and basketball teams helped prepare, set up and serve lunch.
"We're all psyched up, ready to play the game this weekend, but we know that there's more important things," said Nate Bonsu, CU defensive tackle. "All the people that's suffering from the floods, a lot of the guys on our team have been impacted as well. So we know the realism of it and we're just out here to help any way we can."
