The Archer Daniels Midland Company converts corn, oilseeds, wheat, and cocoa into products for food, animal feed, chemical, and energy uses. The Company’s new ADM Cares program supports safe, responsible, and environmentally sound agricultural practices in critical growing regions in more than 60 countries around the world including North America, South America, West Africa, and Southeast Asia. Grantmaking is focused on four areas: health and safety programs for farm workers and children who live on farms, responsible use of agricultural chemicals, sustainable farming practices, and rehabilitation and preservation of environmentally sensitive lands. The Program will focus 1 percent of pre-tax earnings to investments to support these grant interests. At the local level, the Company will continue to support educational initiatives for children and young adults, and other programs that build vibrant communities. Additional information, including an online application, which can be submitted at any time, can be found on the Web site.
