CHS Larsen Co-op joins the fight against rural hunger

CHS Larsen Cooperative joined CHS locations across the country in fighting rural hunger with the cooperative’s annual CHS Harvest for Hunger food, funds and grain drive. The annual campaign gathered more than $540,000 and 215,000 pounds of food to fight hunger in rural America.
Locally, CHS Larsen Cooperative raised $2,600 and 580 pounds of food. Donations and contributions were delivered to partnering local food pantries in our surrounding area. Since 2011, CHS Country Operations, a division of CHS, the nation’s leading farmer-owned cooperative, has organized the campaign to gather money and food for local and regional food shelves across the country. With this year’s total, the cooperative has now raised more than $5.4 million and 3.6 million pounds of food in the eight years since the campaign was first launched.
“Hunger exists everywhere, even in rural communities. We may never know that the family next door or the neighbor down the street struggles to put food on the table,” says Todd Reif, General Manager. “But we are in the business of feeding the world, which is why the annual CHS Harvest for Hunger campaign is so important to us. Through this campaign, we are helping food shelves fight hunger right here in our communities. We want to make sure everyone gets enough to eat every day, locally and across the world.”
