Supporting Local Communities

Across America, farmers, ranchers and those involved in agriculture work together in times of prosperity and in crisis. This sense of responsibility and compassion for one another is woven into the fabric of those of us who work in the agricultural community. But it doesn’t stop there. It also extends to being good citizens, engaged in the communities where we live.

One of the American Feed Industry Association’s four pillars of sustainability focuses on AFIA members’ contributions to charitable causes, both in terms of volunteer hours and donations.

The AFIA’s members immediately took action to help their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. From donating food and money to hunger relief organizations, to providing equipment and medical supplies to frontline healthcare workers, to donating pet food to help Americans in need feed their pets, AFIA’s members have been hard at work supporting their local communities.
