Feeding America is proud of the impact that the Invest An Acre program has made in local communities across the country. Invest An Acre was founded in 2012 as an innovative partnership between The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Feeding America, and other notable organizations. Monsanto’s generous four-year gift allowed the Invest An Acre program to match individual donations made by farmers and community members dollar for dollar until June 30, 2017 or until matching funds were depleted.
As of November 7, 2016, the pool of matching funds for the Invest An Acre program has been fully depleted. For all donations received after the match cap has been met, the donor’s local food bank will receive the original donations, but not the match. The Invest An Acre program will no longer match donations or operate actively, until further notice.
