Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) is making an additional $800,000 in donations to organizations focused on addressing needs during COVID-19, including food assistance, hunger relief and local support to hospitals and first responders.

“These are unprecedented times, and ADM is committed to doing our part to help address the tremendous need around the world right now,” ADM chairman and chief executive officer Juan Luciano said.

The $800,000 in new contributions are in addition to more than $1 million previously committed to COVID-19-related relief efforts and are directed to various local organizations with a direct impact in communities and regions where ADM has a large presence.

For example, near ADM’s global headquarters base in Chicago, Ill., the company is focusing on food scarcity issues through partnerships with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Lawrence Hall, The Bigger Table and The Trotter Project. ADM is also providing funds to support a partnership with Rutgers to advance virus mitigation research and medical support in parts of Europe, Asia Pacific and South America.

The donations were given through ADM Cares. ADM Cares helps sustain and strengthen communities where ADM colleagues work, live and operate by directing funding, volunteerism and industry knowledge to initiatives and organizations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide. ADM Cares focuses its efforts primarily in three areas: advancing sustainable agriculture, increasing food security and investing in education.
