Invest an Acre

Even though America’s farmers are among the most productive and efficient in the world, hunger is still a significant problem in America. Nearly 15 percent of all rural households are regularly without food – that’s around 3 million households in the very communities where much of the world’s food supply is raised. In addition, one out of every six people goes hungry regularly in the United States.

In keeping with our commitment to sustainable agriculture and improving lives, Monsanto is partnering with the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Feeding America and Archer Daniels Midland Company in Invest an Acre, which is focused on addressing rural hunger in America.
