4th Annual Harvest for Hunger
Join Northern Plains as it collects food and funds to help fight hunger. We are participating in the fourth annual CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive to raise donations of money, food and grain to benefit hungry families throughout our community. Hunger in America exists for more than 50 million people, according to Feeding America. That’s one in six of the U.S. population – including more than one in five children.
