Omaha, NE (March 25, 2014) – The Scoular Company recently partnered with Invest an Acre, a program that encourages farmers across the country to donate one acre or more of crop proceeds to help eliminate hunger in their local communities.
Beginning June 1, 2014, The Scoular Foundation will provide a $100 gift to Invest an Acre for each Nebraska farmer’s donation to the program. Donations in Nebraska are also matched by Monsanto and Farm Credit Services of America, with 100 percent of every donation going to the food bank serving the donating farmer’s local community.
Scoular offices and facilities in the following Nebraska locations will be participating in the Invest an Acre program: Atlanta, Big Springs, Brandon, Fremont, Grainton, Hershey, Holdrege, Lamar, Madrid, North and South Grant, Omaha, Paxton, Rushville, Sidney, Sutherland, Venango, and Wallace.
When farmers sell grain to Scoular, they can designate an amount to be donated to Invest an Acre. The local Scoular location will then make the farmer’s designated donation to Invest an Acre and deduct the donation amount from the farmer’s grain settlement. Feeding America will distribute 100% of the donation, plus the matching gifts, to the food bank serving the farmer’s local community. For more information, please visit www.investanacre.org.
