Cargill invests in local communities through economic development, partnerships and giving combined with the volunteer efforts of our employees. Cargill provides corporate support to select national and global nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that serve communities in which we have a business presence. We support partners working within our focus areas of food security, nutrition, and sustainability. And, our businesses and facilities sponsor employee-led groups, called Cargill Cares Councils, which support civic and non-profit organizations in their local communities.
Cargill Cares Councils seek to recognize issues important to our communities; build effective relationships with community leaders; and work to help improve living standards and promote vibrant, stable communities.
Cargill employees support professional agricultural high-school in Kneja
Cargill made a donation to a Bulgarian professional agricultural high-school in the town of Kneja on the day they celebrated their anniversary. Twelve Cargill employees participated in the event where other guests included local authorities and farmers from the region. Our general Manager presented Cargill’s donation of much needed seeding equipment, seeds and crop protecting products to the school for their practical exercises. An artistic program performed by the students was followed by a small reception where we met and talked to school teachers, local farmers and municipality representatives.
