Colorado Proud: 20 Years of Locally-Sourced Food

You’ve probably seen the Colorado Proud logo on produce, meat, and dairy products that you buy at the grocery store. The logo tells you that the product was grown or raised right here in Colorado. This August, the Colorado Proud program is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a statewide community tour. The tour will kick off in Denver on Colorado Day, August 1, followed by events across the state throughout the month.
