Central Bi-Products to Host Second Annual Food Drive This August


Long Prairie, MN – This month, Central Bi-Products will be conducting a food drive to benefit the Long Prairie Food Pantry. The Food Drive will take place on August 27, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Donations can be brought to Coborn’s in Long Prairie. All funds raised and food gathered will be donated to the Long Prairie Food Pantry and matched up to $500 per donation by Farmers Union Industries, Central Bi-Products’ parent company.


The Long Prairie event is the final stop on Central Bi-Products’ 2nd Annual “Farmers Feeding Others One Food Pantry at a Time” food drive. The event was preceded by food drives in Redwood Falls, MN and in Estherville, IA. Central Bi-Products employees are planning this event in hopes to help stock the food pantries before school starts and the demand increases in the fall. With the impact COVID19 has had in this country and around the world, it is important now more than ever, to help those in need.


“After a great turn out last year, we are excited to get back out in our communities to collect food and funds for our local area food shelves. These communities are home not only to our facilities but to those who help us run successfully as an organization and we’re proud to be able to give back to our neighbors,” stated Dan Hildebrandt, President and CEO of Farmers Union Industries.
