2023 Food Drive Results

Jul 06, 2023

Farmers Cooperative held an employee food drive June 12th – 16th in hopes of lessening the burden on families in our communities who are food insecure. 

Congratulations to the Burchard location on winning again this year! They came in with a total of 685 pounds/monetary donations, which averages out to 97.86 pounds per employee donated. Total donations were divided by the number of employees at each location giving the average pound per employee. The employees at Burchard will receive a catered lunch as thanks for their outstanding participation in the food drive.

We thank each and every one of you that participated in this event for making a difference in your community. We want to recognize the following locations that participated in this year’s food drive.
