CFS Donates $2400 to Watonwan Backpack Food Program

Jul 26, 2019


The CFS Foundation approved $10,000 in grant funds to be distributed to 15 backpack food programs within their service and trade area.  In addition, the CFS funds are being matched by the Land O’Lakes Foundation, bringing the total contribution to $20,000.  The purpose of the grant money is to help children with food insecurities.
 
“Giving back to our Communities is one of our five cooperative principals,” said CEO, Merlyn Kruger.  “Contributions such as this are an investment in the future of our rural communities.”
 
Each program advisor was asked to fill out an application sharing with us how the funds are used and how many families they serve and how our donation would benefit their program.  
 
The funds provided will supply food packs for all of Watonwan County covering 3 School Districts. They have helped 310 children.
 
“Backpack programs play an important role in helping students with food insecurities. Programs like this allow us to help feed children close to home.”
 
CFS employees, Sue Bay and Matt Leaman were on-hand to present Watonwan County Backpack Program with a check for $1,200 and matching funds from Land O’Lakes Foundation of $1,200 for a total of $2,400.
