Invest An Acre
ADM, The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, 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 fight hunger in their own communities.

Why is the Invest an Acre Program important?
How does the Invest an Acre Program help Feeding South Dakota?
A check for the sale of grain will be issued to Feeding America and distributed to Feeding South Dakota. You, the farmer, will receive a receipt for your charitable contribution.
100% of your contribution will benefit Feeding South Dakota when you donate grain through the Invest an Acre program.
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 fellow South Dakotans to receive a healthy meal.
