08/09/17

Marquis Energy partnered with Illinois non-profits in bringing fresh sweet corn to those in need throughout the Chicagoland area.

“It was a successful harvest with trucks loaded with sweet corn to deliver to the Greater Chicago Food Depository for distribution to those in need,” said Tom Marquis, Vice President of Marquis Energy.

Sweet Corn for Charity is part of the Agri Heritage Foundation, who, with its partners, annually plants and harvests approximately 67,000 pounds of sweet corn for Chicago’s food banks.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository distributes an average of 200,000 pounds of food to people in need across Chicago and Cook County every day, providing fresh produce with every delivery.

Marquis remains committed to bettering the community through service and producing ethanol for cleaner air and more affordable fuel.

With a production capacity of one million gallons of fuel grade ethanol per day, Marquis Energy is the largest dry mill ethanol facility in the United States.
