CHS Larsen Cooperative is excited to launch this year’s Harvest for Hunger campaign. Each year CHS Larsen Cooperative, and CHS Inc. team up to collect food, monetary, and crop donations to help keep local food pantry shelves stocked. As part of CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive, CHS Larsen Cooperative will accept contributions from March 1 through March 20 at its locations in New London, Readfield, Center Valley, Weyauwega, Larsen, and Oconto Falls; we will then deliver all collections to our local food pantries.
Hunger is a reality for more than 40 million people in America, including 13.1 million children. Every dollar we raise through CHS Harvest for Hunger can purchase six pounds of food through our food banks. That’s making a real difference for those in need.
Financial donations are encouraged because they enable food banks to leverage their buying power to provide nutritious food at deeply discounted rates. In 2016, CHS Larsen Cooperative raised $5,393.55 and over 1,890 pounds of food which their parent company, CHS, added bonus dollars, bringing the 2016 total to $11,207.55. This all stayed in the communities in which we reside.
We will be hosting a 10 days of giving or $10 challenge at each of our locations to encourage collections, check our website out for more details. Non-perishable food items and monetary donations will be accepted. You can also bring your donations to the Early Seed pick up days in New London. If you would like to donate to this cause but are unable to drop it off at one of our locations please contact Cathie Hansen at our main office 920-982-1111 and she will send someone out to pick up the donation. Or you may mail a check to CHS Larsen Cooperative Attn: Harvest for Hunger P.O. Box 308 New London WI, 54961.
You will see 100% of the proceeds stay local in our surrounding area food pantries. CHS Country Operations matches a portion of all donations raised. Please help us make this year’s CHS Harvest for Hunger another successful year. Let’s fight hunger together!
We thank you for your generosity!
