Description:

Monsanto Company delivers agricultural products that support farmers all around the world. As an agriculture company with deep roots in rural America, Monsanto is committed to do their part in fighting rural hunger in America through partnerships and philanthropy.

Monsanto employees fight rural hunger as part of a coordinated volunteer effort called Monsantotogether, through which Monsanto employees also earn donations for qualified non-profit organizations where they volunteer for a minimum of 20 hours.

Monsanto works in partnership with farmers, students and others in rural communities to end hunger through the America's Farmers Food Drive, America's Farmers Grow Communities, Invest an Acre, and support for the National FFA Organization's hunger initiative Feeding Our World - Starting at Home.

In addition to their work in rural America, Monsanto also works to improve the lives of people around the world through the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of the Monsanto Company.

How to Help:

Through the Invest an Acre program, farmers can donate an acre or more of their crop to food banks through the local ADM elevators, and Monsanto will match farmer donations, dollar for dollar. Feeding America distributes the farmer donations and the Monsanto monetary match to participating food banks.

Farmers and organizations in rural communities can partner with the Monsanto Fund to fight hunger through their America's Farmers Grow Communities program. Farmers can visit GrowCommunities.com to enroll. Organizations and community members can suggest their project by planting their idea.

Nonprofit organizations in communities where Monsanto works are encouraged to reach out to their local Monsanto Site contacts to explore possible areas of collaboration, including employee volunteerism and US Site Grants.
