Dakota Ag cooperative kicks off hunger driveKINDRED, N.D. – Dakota Ag Co-op is gathering donations of money, food and crops to help raise the equivalent of 2 million meals for hungry families.
As part of the CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive, Dakota Ag Co-op will accept contributions from now through March 16 at its locations in Kindred, Casselton, West Fargo, Horace, Mooreton, Wyndmere, Mantador and Galchutt in North Dakota, Glyndon and Comstock in Minnesota, and Claire City, S.D., and deliver them to regional food banks.
Donations collected at Dakota Ag Co-op will support families using the Great Plains Food Bank.
“We’re excited to participate in CHS Harvest for Hunger,” Dennis Novacek, Dakota Ag Co-op general manager, said in a news release. “For every donation we collect, CHS Country Operations will also make a local contribution to help friends and neighbors right here in our community.”
Financial donations are encouraged, the news release stated, because food banks can use their buying power to provide food at deeply discounted rates.
Dakota Ag Co-op is a business unit of CHS Inc., a leading energy, grains and foods company.
