ROCHESTER, Minn. - Hy-Vee dropped off 80,000 pounds of food to Channel One Regional Food Bank Wednesday morning.
That is just a fraction of what the company is giving all around the Midwest.
That total donation will add up to one million pounds of food.
Hy-Vee's donations are valued at $250,000.
The company received food donations, as well as monetary donations from leading food manufacterers to distribute.
The Hy-Vee District Director, Chad Hartogh, says the company wants the Rochester Community to know it is there for them.
"It's just great when you're able to work for a company that has that in mind and always has the priorities in the right order. And we're always there to help our community," says Hartogh.
Hy-Vee's donations will be distributed to 17 Midwest food banks.
