Last week we took a trip to Yuma to meet the generous folks at CHS. Cooperatively, the M&M Cooperative, Grainland Cooperative and United Plains Cooperative collected an outstanding total of $23,729.52 for Food Bank of the Rockies in their Harvest for Hunger Campaign. In just 16 days, CHS employees, customers and partners collectively raised the equivalent of 2.45 million meals, including 652,000 pounds of canned and fresh foods and over $360,000 in cash and grain for FBR and a host of other hunger relief organizations. Not only did this surpass their goal for 2012, it was 450,000 meals more than were collected in last year’s drive.
M&M cooperative is a business unit of CHS Inc., the nation’s leading cooperative, owned by farmers, ranchers and co-ops across the United States. Held March 1-16, the CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive harnessed the power of CHS retail locations to help address America’s growing hunger problem. THANKS to all those involved in this outstanding gift! Your efforts will provide 94,918 meals through Food Bank of the Rockies. We appreciate your efforts so very much and hope to continue this wonderful partnership for years to come!
