Community involvement

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. Since 2017 your local CHS has donated just over $20,000 to local programs in North Dakota. Learn more at

We enthusiastically participate in the annual CHS Country Operations Harvest for Hunger program, which has provided more than $7.37 million and 3.94 million pounds of food to local and regional food shelves, pantries and nonprofits. Donations will help feed people in need right here in the communities we serve. Your local CHS has raised just under $107,000 since 2011, with 100% of the funds going to local food pantries in North Dakota.
