Community Involvement

Building Vibrant Communities
At CHS, we are committed to being active members of our communities and helping to support the future of rural America and agriculture. We are proud to give back to our towns with our time, talent and resources.

Here in Minnesota and Iowa, we enthusiastically participate in the annual CHS Country Operations Harvest for Hunger program, which has provided more than 7.5 million meals since 2011. We encourage you to help us in this effort by contributing cash and canned/fresh foods for the Harvest for Hunger drive. Your donations will help feed people in need right here in the communities we serve.

4-h-logo CHS is committed to 4-H youth!  With strong brand equity and recognition, 4-H programs positively impact millions of families in every urban, suburban, and rural community in America. CHS Rochester is committed to the local 4-H movement and exemplify the philosophy of “making the best better.” Each year we purchase over 20 ribbons at 5 different county fairs with all proceeds going back to the 4-H’er and local clubs.
