Cargill gives $22,000 to Catholic Charities

Cargill has donated $22,000 to Catholic Charities of Schuyler County to develop and operate the Schuyler County Community Food Project. This grant will fund a part-time employee to coordinate food collection, distribution and education activities and program supplies.

The objectives of the project are to address long-term solutions to hunger-related issues in the community. Coordination activities will primarily focus on strengthening a Volunteer Corps that is being established. The Corps will recruit, train and coordinate the needed volunteers to perform the education, collection and distribution activities.

In a similar vein, Catholic Charities started the Community Garden in 2009. The purpose was to teach people how to grow their own food and to provide fresh, locally grown produce to those in need through the food pantries and senior housing facilities. Two significant obstacles have been identified with that project: a lack of gardening skills and a lack of education on how to prepare and use fresh produce. This new program will address those issues through education and
awareness.

“Cargill’s statement of purpose is to be the global leader in nourishing people,” said Don Chutas, Cargill Salt’s plant manager. “This grant helps support that purpose and Catholic Charities’ mission of reducing poverty and promoting a healthy family life.”

Cargill is an international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services. Founded in 1865, the privately held company employs 131,000 people in 66 countries.

Catholic Charities provides a number of needed programs and services in the community with a priority toward the poor. It works to ensure that people have food, clothing, shelter, medical services, and the ability to achieve a decent standard of living.

Shame on the diocese for taking money from this corrupt company.

They are so much more than a salt company! They are a much bigger part of the food chain than most people even realize.
Their troubles range from child, slave labor,food contamination as well as being one of the biggest contributors to deforestation and destruction of the rainforest.
