POULSBO — Local Cenex dealers are accepting donations of money and food as part of CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive, now through March 20.
The goal: raise more than 2 million meals for hungry families. CHS/Cenex has locations in Auburn, Black Diamond, Chehalis, Chimacum, Gig Harbor/Purdy, and Poulsbo. The stores will deliver the donations to area food banks.
“To support local donations to CHS Harvest for Hunger, CHS Country Operations will also make a contribution to help friends and neighbors right here in our community,” general manager Edward Scheetz said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to multiply the impact of every donation we make.”
Financial donations are encouraged because they enable food banks to use their buying power to provide nutritious food at deeply discounted rates. Every $1 donated provides between 3.7 and 7 meals; the number of meals per dollar varies by region.
CHS, Inc. is an energy, grains and foods agribusiness owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the United States.
