Food drives feed local families

Great River Gives LogoMore than 1,100 pounds of food and $1,550 will help put much-needed food on the plates of local families following Great River Energy’s company-wide food drive.

Locations across Minnesota and North Dakota all rallied for their local food pantries, amassing donations that will make a difference for their neighbors in need of a little assistance.

Great River Energy scheduled its food drive during the summer because it is a particularly challenging time for families experiencing hunger, particularly those who depend on school-based food assistance programs.

Food drives and other community giving campaigns are part of the Great River Gives program.
