Q. How does my donation work?
A. It’s easy. When you deliver the crop to your local grain elevator, decide how many bushels you would like to donate. At the elevator, simply mention to the elevator staff that you wish to opt in to Invest an Acre to support Second Harvest Community Food Bank.
Q. Can local food pantries receive funding from Invest an Acre?
A. No. At this time, the Invest an Acre partners (Monsanto, Howard Buffet Foundation and Feeding America) wish to apply Invest an Acre funding to the 200 Feeding America affiliate food banks across the nation.
Q. Can a producer designate his/her Invest an Acre gift to a specific county, program or pantry?
A. At this time, funding given to Second Harvest Community Food Bank through Invest an Acre helps to support the hunger-relief work we do in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas.
