ADM Employees Donate 111 Metric Tons Of Food To Those In Need

In recognition of World Food Day, employees of Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) around the globe donated the equivalent of more than 245,453 pounds (111 metric tons) of food to help those in need in ADM communities. Donations were made in 29 communities in six different countries.

“These are not just the communities where we happen to have facilities; these are the places we live and work,” said Matt Jansen, ADM corporate senior vice president and president, Oilseeds. “We depend on the economic health and vitality of these communities, not just for our business, but for the wellbeing of our colleagues, their families and neighbors. With these donations, our colleagues around the globe are giving something back.”

The donations were coordinated through ADM Cares, the company’s social investment program that directs funds to initiatives and organizations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide. ADM Cares 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.

ADM’s World Food Day donations align with other major ADM efforts to help the needy—particularly those suffering from hunger—in rural communities. In October, the company announced that it was contributing $1 million to Feeding America to fund 30 mobile food distribution units in 21 states in which we live and work. And in April, ADM partnered with Feeding America and the Howard G. Buffett Foundation to create the Invest an Acre Program, in which farmers can choose to donate part of the profit from their crop at ADM elevators to help feed their neighbors in need (for more information, see www.InvestAnAcre.org).

About World Food DayThe Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations celebrates World Food Day each year on October 16, the day on which the organization was founded in 1945. World Food Day helps to strengthen international and national efforts in the fight against hunger, malnutrition and poverty, and to draw attention to achievements in food and agricultural development.
