Because we value the partnerships we have with farmers across America, ADM is proud to join with The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Feeding America and Monsanto for Invest an Acre—the first wide-scale effort to mobilize U.S. farmers to support hunger relief.
Invest an Acre launched in 2012, giving every farmer doing business with ADM in the United States the opportunity to make a donation to feed their neighbors in need.
When you deliver grain to an ADM elevator, we will ask you if you’d like to donate the proceeds from an acre—or more—to help feed the hungry in your community. To facilitate the program, we’ll process the paperwork to finalize your donation, and forward your donated funds directly to Feeding America where they will be used to support your local community food pantry.
Every dollar you donate will help provide six meals to hungry people in need in your community. The Howard G. Buffett Foundation is underwriting all costs of operating the program, allowing 100 percent of funds donated to Invest an Acre to support local hunger-relief efforts in your local area. And, Monsanto matches your donation giving twice the impact.
To educate farmers about the program, Invest an Acre is launching a marketing campaign that includes print and radio ads, direct-mail postcards, Twitter posts and more.
