Valley Wide Cooperative Helps Feed Idaho

Boise, Idaho – Valley Wide Cooperative, Valley Agronomics with matching funds from Land O’ Lakes donated a total of $16,000 and 10 tons of food to the 7 Cares Idaho Shares program. The 7 Cares program is held yearly and directly funds The Idaho Food Bank, The Salvation Army and various Women and Children’s shelter throughout the state of Idaho. The donation will be used to help fund the operation of cloud seeders, both in the air and on the ground.  Cloud seeders are extremely important to the success of agriculture and communities by helping to provide precipitation to clouds that in turn will create rain in agricultural and water storage areas.  This particular project will help the Wood River and Camus Creek, which will ultimately flow to the Magic Reservoir. The Wood River RC & D Treasurer, Terry Aruby stated after the donation “We greatly appreciate the donation from Valley Wide Coop, it will go a long way to help in our efforts.” 

Since 1920 Valley Wide Cooperative has been helping farmers and ranchers build their homes and businesses through dedication and expertise. Valley Wide Cooperative is involved in every community we are a part of, and we are helping to cultivate and strengthen the current and next generation of farmers.
