CHS Marshall helps serve up food and funds for hungry families

CHS Marshall joined CHS locations across the country in raising more than $512,000 and 443,000 pounds of food for hungry families through the annual CHS Harvest for Hunger food, funds and grain drive by the Country Operations division of CHS, the nation’s leading farmer-owned cooperative.

Since the program’s launch in 2011, more than $1.6 million and 2.1 million pounds of food have been raised. Donations collected went to our regional food banks. CHS Marshall promoted the Harvest for Hunger program throughout their trade area to help raise food, funds and bushels of grain. “Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is a core value for us. We’re so proud of our employees, customers and partners who contributed to help feed hungry families through CHS Harvest for Hunger.

It’s exciting to be part of this effort and see how much our communities care about those in need,” says Todd Reif, general manager. CHS locations in more than 300 communities participated in this annual event. In addition, CHS Country Operations boosted donations to CHS Harvest for Hunger through additional contributions to local communities to help friends and neighbors.

This year’s participating food banks were: Flandreau, SD, Lake Benton, Tracy, Pipestone, Tyler and Marshall. Please contact one of our offices if you know of any other food banks that would like to be part of our drive next year.
