CHS Larsen Cooperative is gathering donations of money, food and crops to help fight hunger. As part of CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive, the cooperative will accept contributions through March 20 at its locations in Oconto Falls, New London, Readfield, Center Valley, Weyauwega and Larsen; they 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,” said Todd Reif, general manager. “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 2017, CHS Larsen Cooperative raised $4,208 and collected more than 5,028 pounds of food. Their parent company, CHS, added bonus dollars to bring the 2017 total to $10,092. This all stayed in the local communities.

People who are unable to drop off donations can contact Anne Moore at 920-982-1111 to send someone out to pick up the donation. Checks may be sent to CHS Larsen Cooperative, Attn: Harvest for Hunger, P.O. Box 308, New London, WI 54961.
