“It’s through these types of critical, breakthrough innovations that Bayer is positioned to address food security. With more mouths to feed, we must help farmers do more with less,” says Dr. Jacqueline (Jackie) Applegate, Bayer’s president of North America Crop Science.
The company is also raising awareness about the issue of food insecurity in other creative ways, through such initiatives as the #HeresToTheFarmer campaign, a partnership with country star Luke Bryan to celebrate America’s farmers and fight hunger. For every share of the hashtag on social media now through October 31, Bayer helps provide one meal through the Feeding America network and up to 1 million meals to communities in need. Since the partnership’s inception in 2015, 6 million meals have been donated and more than $180,000 has gone to Feeding America member food banks and local farmers at each of the tour cities.
When we hear stories of food insecurity and nutritional gaps in America, it’s easy to assume these hardships are few and far between. The truth is, they’re far more prevalent than we’ve imagined—at least until we do something to reverse the trend.
