CHS team joins forces statewide and nationally, check presented at NCFB Wednesday
CHS Sunflower, CHS Prairie Lakes, CHS Ag Services, CHS New Horizons, CHS Mid Valley Grain, CHS Northwest Grain, and CHS Mahnomen joined CHS locations across the country in sending more than $725,000 and 610,000 pounds of food to hungry families through the annual CHS Harvest for Hunger food, funds and grain drive led by the Country Operations division of CHS, the nation's leading farmer-owned cooperative.
Since the program's launch in 2011, more than $4.7 million and 3.4 million pounds of food have been raised. Donations and additional contributions by CHS will be going to food shelves and other charities in the local communities served by CHS. CHS County Operations locations participated in the 2017 Harvest for Hunger drive held March 1-20 to raise food and funds.
"Hunger is a reality for many in our communities and we may not even know it. Through CHS Harvest for Hunger, we are helping those in need,” said CHS Mid Valley Grain General Manager Robert Staehnke. “And because we work with other CHS County Operations locations, every dollar and donation stretches even further to make a much greater impact in the fight against hunger.”
