On April 30, 2020, Ken Nesvig, Betaseed Independent Sales Agent for the American Crystal region, donated $2,500 each to two local Red River Valley organizations, Valley Senior Services and the Great Plains Food Bank. “Betaseed is always seeking opportunities to make a difference in its local communities. We appreciate the value these organizations offer and are happy to support these programs during this challenging time,” said Nesvig.
Valley Senior Services is an organization committed to promoting independence and better health for seniors 60 years and older. They help thousands of seniors each year through a variety of services such as delivering daily hot meals, building relationships and community at local senior centers, offering transportation services, and much more. “It is because of the involvement of community partners like Betaseed and many others that we are able to help seniors to continue living in their homes as late in life as possible. Thank you, Betaseed, for making a difference in our community,” said Brian Arett, Director of Valley Senior Services.
The Great Plains Food Bank's is the largest hunger-relief organization in North Dakota and serves as its only food bank. Each year, the food bank provides for one in nine individuals seeking emergency food assistance. Their mission is to end hunger in North Dakota and western Minnesota through community partnerships. Steve Sellent, CEO of Great Plains Food Bank commented, “Betaseed’s support will allow us to bring more food to more people more often as we continue to fill gaps in service through our Mobile Food Pantry program, our BackPack Program, or keeping shelves stocked at our partner network of 200 food pantries, shelters and soup kitchens statewide. The impact this gift will make in the lives of children, their families and seniors is incredible. THANK YOU!”
