1 in 5. That’s the number of people in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas who are food insecure. While farmers
are busy producing food, there has been no easy way for farmers to use their crops to help those struggling in our
region. But what if these farmers could just hand part of the crops they grow to the people who need it most? That’s the
idea behind Invest an Acre. Now, it’s easy for farmers to be part of the solution to hunger.
What is Invest an Acre?
Second Harvest Community Food Bank, ADM, The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Monsanto and Feeding America have
partnered to launch Invest an Acre, a program to encourage farmers across the country to donate one acre or more of
crop proceeds to help nourish their neighbors in need.
How does my donation work?
How much of my donation will benefit Second Harvest?
100% of your contribution will benefit Second Harvest when you donate grain through the Invest an Acre program.
Monsanto will match your donation one-for-one, doubling the impact of your contribution. The Howard G. Buffett
Foundation will underwrite all of the administrative costs.
How much will my donation help?
On average, every bushel of corn can help secure 18 meals and a bushel of soybeans can help secure up to 40 meals.
When you donate a single acre, you are helping thousands of your neighbors to receive a healthy meal.
