Donations of $45,000 will reach Wisconsin community food pantries this month thanks to Beaver Dam-based United Cooperative, and matching funds from Land O'Lakes Foundation, CHS Foundation and CoBank. “While our cooperatives are dedicated to the food industry through the growing, handling and marketing of grain and feeding of animals, food is not necessarily an abundant resource for families in need,” shared David Cramer, United Cooperative President and CEO. “As a local agricultural organization that is committed to serving its members, we provide these resources to help area communities serve their residents with food,” he added.

United Cooperative has provided $189 thousand dollars to Wisconsin food pantries over the last five years. This year, as many communities in the United Cooperative area were impacted by devastating floods, United Cooperative moved the timing of these donations to October to better support those in need, now. Donations to these food pantries are provided in honor of all United Cooperative farmer/members across south central, southwest and northeast Wisconsin.
