CHS Larsen Cooperative is all “Pumped up” for this year’s CHS Harvest for Hunger campaign. Each year Country Operations, CHS Larsen Cooperative, and CHS Inc. team up to collect food, monetary, and grain donations to help keep local food pantry shelves stocked. Since 2011, over $2.1 million and 2.3 million pounds of food have been donated to food banks across the U.S. and went to hungry families across the nation. More than 50 CHS business units and more than 4,000 employees have participated in the Harvest for Hunger drive. Locally, in 2015, CHS Larsen Cooperative raised $12,959 and over 1,650 pounds of food which stayed in the communities in which we reside.
CHS Larsen Cooperative is proud to participate again in the 2016 Harvest for Hunger campaign running March 1-20, 2016. On Friday, March 11, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. CHS Larsen Coop employees will be at our two gas stations at Wild Rose C-store, Larsen Location, and New London Travel Plaza, providing full services at the pumps and serving lunch. They will be collecting tips for pumping gas, washing windshields, etc., as well as, serving a full meal for $5 and a bake sale for those with a sweet tooth! We hope you are able to attend this fun event and help us get “Pumped Up” about helping our local communities in stocking shelves for those families in need.
As well as having a fundraiser, we will be collecting donations at all facility locations March 1-20. Non-perishable food items and monetary donations will be accepted. 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.
100% of the proceeds stay local in our surrounding area food pantries. Also, CHS Country Operations matches the donations raised locally. Please help us make this year’s CHS Harvest for Hunger another successful year. Let’s fight hunger together!
