Channel One Regional Food Bank fights hunger every day in Southeast Minnesota. They serve over 100,000 people in a 14-county area and the Rochester based non-profit recently got a huge assist from a Minnesota based company.

Land O’Lakes, Inc. is donating nearly 40,000 pounds of LAND O LAKES® Macaroni & Cheese to Channel One Regional Food Bank! The donation is being made through the "Land O’Lakes First Run Program" which has already donated more than 5 million pounds of product since it was established in 2010.

“As a national, farmer-owned cooperative, Land O’Lakes is committed to helping the growing number of people who struggle to put food on their table,” said Sheilah Stewart, SVP & General Counsel, Land O’Lakes, Inc. “The First Run program provides a unique opportunity for Land O’Lakes to offer nutritious products to families in need.”

Virginia Merritt, Executive Director of Channel One Regional Food Bank, said: “It is heartwarming to see a Minnesota Company producing food especially for its food insecure Minnesota neighbors.”
