That has taken on a new meaning as hardworking families around the U.S. are suddenly out of work. When the Syngenta leadership team learned that food banks in the communities surrounding the company’s major operations were serving double or triple their normal meals, the leadership team jumped into action.

“Our mission is around food security, so we see the importance now more than ever to help provide food and meals to those in need,” says Kathy Eichlin, head of internal communications at Syngenta, North America. “There was no hesitancy from our employees and leadership team to help our surrounding community by providing access to food and supplies immediately.”
The company has donated tens of thousands of meals to food banks in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Omaha, Nebraska; Greensboro and Raleigh, North Carolina; and other locations. “It’s rewarding to give back to the communities that have given us so much over the years,” Eichlin says.
