First launched in 2011, Harvest for Hunger campaign has helped feed thousands in need
FARGO, N.D. – On Thursday, CHS Dakota Plains Ag donated $53,669 to the Great Plains Food Bank through their annual Harvest for Hunger campaign, which will provide 107,338 meals for people living with food insecurity. Becoming an invaluable resource to feed hungry children, seniors and families across North Dakota and Clay County, Minn., Harvest for Hunger has given more than $1 million to the Great Plains Food Bank since 2011.
“Hunger affects our neighbors, friends and community members. We are coming together once again to help bridge the gap to hunger, to put food on the table and bring hope for tomorrow,” CHS Harvest for Hunger details on its website.
Started as a nationwide campaign in 2011, every March CHS employees partner with farmers and ranchers, community organizations and businesses to host a range of food, funds and grain drive events to benefit local food banks. Nationwide, the campaign has raised more than $6 million in that time. CHS Dakota Plains Ag has been making annual contributions to the Great Plains Food Bank through the campaign since 2011.
“It is truly remarkable any time a partner can display this type of commitment and we are so thrilled to continue to work with CHS Dakota Plains Ag on Harvest for Hunger,” Great Plains Food Bank CEO Melissa Sobolik said. “Their commitment for the past 13 years to help in our work has been unwavering, providing millions of meals to help feed those in need.”
