RDO Caters Taters for Charity is possible because of the goods, services, and dollars donated by generous companies that support the event year after year. We’re pleased to highlight our Hot Potato sponsors with a special feature here on the blog. Read to find out more about one of our Take Out sponsors, John Deere, a company with which – well-known to most reading this – R.D. Offutt Company has enjoyed one of its longest partnerships. John Deere Since the company was founded in 1837, John Deere has delivered products and services to support those linked to the land. That year, blacksmith John Deere created his first plow, a highly polished steel mold board from a broken sawblade, and since then the company has innovated, diversified, and grown. It’s no secret that a relationship – and a significant one – exists between R.D. Offutt Company and John Deere. From the towering John Deere signs at the RDO Equipment Co. store in Moorhead to green tractors farming the R.D. Offutt Farms’ fields in Park Rapids, virtually everyone in the communities would recognize John Deere as a major partner of R.D. Offutt Company. John Deere’s support of RDO Caters Taters spills over into its own values and focus on community support and, this year, an added link to benefiting charity, Great Plains Food Bank. Local and Global Impact John Deere is committed to the communities where its company has a presence so it’s not surprising that, with the Moorhead RDO Equipment Co. store and hundreds of customers in the area, the Fargo-Moorhead community is no exception. In addition to supporting RDO Caters Taters because of its ties to R.D. Offutt Company and local customers, this year’s event holds a little extra meaning for John Deere because of Great Plains Food Bank and its mission to end hunger. John Deere too is focused on finding solutions for hunger, both on a local and a global level. The company supports various programs in local communities, as well as focuses initiatives in Africa and Asia. John Deere’s work to transform under-resourced agricultural communities in developing countries includes training for farmers, value-chain enhancement, and access to water. A tradition with deep roots in agriculture. A global presence in feeding the world. A commitment to communities and charitable causes. In addition to an RDO Caters Taters partnership, these are just a few things John Deere and R.D. Offutt Company have in common. Visit John Deere's website to learn more about the company and the equipment it offers. ----- Join us for RDO Caters Taters for Charity, Tuesday, November 20 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Fargo. 100% of proceeds benefit Great Plains Food Bank.
