AgCountry Farm Credit Services has donated more than $14,000 toward hunger relief efforts in eastern North Dakota and northwest and west-central Minnesota.

The Jamestown office made a contribution to the Region VI Community Action and the Salvation Army in Jamestown. This is the 24th year AgCountry has donated funds to local hunger relief efforts.

“The demand at food banks throughout North Dakota and Minnesota continues to increase, particularly during these challenging economic times,” said Bob Bahl, president and CEO at AgCountry Farm Credit Services. “As an agricultural cooperative serving farmers that put food on our tables, we consider it a privilege to help provide for the current and future hunger needs of our communities.”

“We are committed to helping solve the challenge of hunger in our community,” said Scott Moser, senior loan officer/branch manager at AgCountry Farm Credit Services. “We are pleased to support the Jamestown/Stutsman County food pantry in their efforts to create a hunger-free community.”
