Do you “Like” helping the hungry?

The ongoing effort to support local food banks, Weeding out Hunger, has a new way for you to get involved:  Check out our new Facebook page – where for every 250 “likes,” Syngenta will donate $250 to local food banks, up to $1,000. 


Last year, Syngenta donated $100,898 from sales of a residual corn herbicide and nearly five tons of non-perishable food items to 78 food banks in 24 states.  The money went directly to food banks in communities where the herbicide was sold, helping those who are struggling with hunger.


During this season of giving, this is one of the easiest ways to help others – just tell us you “like” what you see from Weeding out Hunger on Facebook.  Thank you!
