Join CHS Holdrege to help fight hunger through CHS Harvest for Hunger
Holdrege, NE, February, 27, 2017 – CHS Holdrege is gathering donations of money, food and crops to help fight hunger. As part of CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive, CHS Holdrege will accept contributions from March 1 through March 20 at its locations in Alma, Bertrand, Bladen, Blue Hill, Elm Creek, Holdrege, Loomis, Overton, Roseland, and Smithfield, and deliver them to regional food banks.
“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 regional food banks,” says Pat Peterson, general manager, CHS Holdrege. “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.
“Our local communities also win when CHS Country Operations makes a contribution to help friends and neighbors right here in our community. Fighting hunger in our communities ties directly to what farmers and ranchers do every day, raising crops and livestock to feed the world,” adds Peterson.
Donations can be made at CHS Holdrege’s locations in Alma, Bertrand, Bladen, Blue Hill, Elm Creek, Loomis, Holdrege, Overton, Roseland and Smithfield, or call 308-995-8626 for more information on how you can help.
CHS Holdrege is a business unit of CHS Inc., a leading energy, grains and foods global agribusiness owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the United States. For nearly 80 years, the CHS system has valued volunteerism and been a responsible steward in its communities; the CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive is designed to harness the power of the 57 CHS-owned/locally governed cooperatives to address America’s growing hunger problem.
Daytime grain trading hours are 8:30 am to 1:15 pm.
