Strengthening Our Hometown Communities

At CHS, we are committed to making a long-lasting, measurable impact on rural America and the agricultural industry. Through our stewardship efforts, we use the collective power of the cooperative system to develop ag leaders for life and to strengthen the hometown communities where our employees, owners and customers live and work. CHS employees give their time, talent and resources back to their local communities through a variety of stewardship efforts including annual Days of Service hours. We also focus on improving ag safety and cultivating ag leaders through the CHS Seeds for Stewardship program, which may make up to $5,000 per year available for local projects. Learn more at

The CHS Foundation helps to create a strong future for rural America. The foundation partners with nearly 30 universities to award scholarships to college students pursuing degrees in agricultural-related fields as well as mini-grants for agriculture-focused college clubs. Students and clubs apply for these scholarships directly through the college or university where they plan to attend. Learn more and see a list of partner universities.

CHS Harvest for Hunger

CHS Farmers Alliance participates in the annual CHS Harvest for Hunger drive, which provides food and funds to local and regional food shelves, pantries and nonprofits. Last year, we raised over $27,000 to help feed people in need right here in the communities we serve.

The CHS Harvest for Hunger food, grain and fund drive begins March 1 and continues through March 20. Contact one of our locations to find out how you can participate in the next drive by contributing cash, grain, and canned/fresh foods.
