Contest benefits food pantry

Employees at DuPont Pioneer and Monsanto seed corn companies in Constantine recently held a friendly competition to see whose employees could collect the most items for the food pantry at Messiah Lutheran Church in Constantine.
Pioneer won the contest with 1,480 pounds of items versus 1,220 pounds of items collected by Monsanto.
Employees delivered what they had collected to the pantry last month. Collections were coordinated by Rachel Alger, a labor coordinator at Pioneer, and Stella Garcia, a production manager at Monsanto.
The number of people picking up food at the pantry is a little lower than usual right now, but it is averaging about 60 clients a month.
