Cargill donates $10 million

Cargill is donating $10 million US to the World Food Programme, it’s largest donation ever..

The Ukraine crisis has triggered global price spikes in food, fuel and fertilizers that threaten to push countries around the world into famine, the agribusiness giant said. The grant comes at a moment of unprecedented need, with 345 million people facing severe hunger and 50 million teetering on the brink of famine, Cargill said in a news release.

"The result will be global destabilization, starvation and mass migration on an unprecedented scale. Together with World Food Program USA, the U.N. World Food Programme is sounding the alarm, engaging private sector partners, and working to ensure action is taken to avert this looming catastrophe," Cargill said.
