27/11/2015: ADM helps feed those in need with nearly US$360,000 in contributions to local food banks

In 2015, Archer Daniels Midland Company contributed nearly US$360,000 to provide food to those in need, including US$318,000 in donations to food banks in 14 different states and more than US$40,000 in matching contributions to food banks from ADM colleagues.

“It’s important to reach out to those in need during the holiday season, and we provide grants to numerous organisations that provide special food assistance programs this time of year. Our colleagues also get involved in many different ways, such as volunteering for and donating to food drives and food packing events and serving meals at missions and soup kitchens,” said Jennifer Ballinger, director, ADM Cares.
“But it’s also important to remember that these organisations need support throughout the year, and as one of the world’s largest agricultural processors and food ingredient providers, ADM is committed to providing help year-round to those that need assistance most in the communities where we live and work.”

The contributions were given through ADM Cares. ADM Cares is a social investment program that directs funds to initiatives and organisations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide. The program comprises three distinct focus areas: supporting the responsible development of agriculture, improving the quality of life in ADM communities and fostering employee giving and volunteer activities.
