      One in six Americans are hungry, according to the group Feeding America. That's one in five children.
      A local food drive hopes to put a dent in that statistic here in Nebraska.
      It's part of CHS Agri Service Center's nearly month-long effort to collect food and funds for area pantries.
      Some say this Harvest for Hunger event couldn't have come at a better time.
      "The local pantry was actually calling here just recently, needing some donations, that their supplies were very limited," said Gary Faimon, of CHS.
      The company hosted a fundraiser lunch in Blue Hill Sunday.
      Proceeds from the fourth annual event will go to pantries in south central Nebraska, with CHS adding a bonus contribution.
