In 2011 as part of the fight against starvation in the Horn of Africa, Cargill made the largest food donation the World Food Program USA (WFP) has ever received from a company. In late November, an entire shipload of rice—10,000 metric tons—arrived from India at the port of Mombasa in Kenya. Following a 23-day voyage across the Indian Ocean, employees from Cargill’s grain and oilseed business met the rice shipment at the port of Mombasa, Kenya. The rice was turned over to WFP for unloading and distribution in Kenya, the country where WFP sees the largest food shortfalls.
Cargill Kenya joined the World Food Programme in to distribute the rice in some of the drought affected areas in Kenya.
