Program Encourages Farmers to Donate an Acre to End Hunger

A program to help end food insecurity in America is encouraging farmers to donate an acre to help end hunger. Invest an Acre program, sponsored by ADM, The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Monsanto and Feeding America, asks farmers across the nation to donate one acre or more of crops to fight hunger in their own communities.

All proceeds are tax deductible and will benefit local food banks. Learn more.
