Cargill & Urban Ventures: Moving the needle together

Working alongside the Cargill Foundation and Cargill Animal Nutrition, more than 100 Cargill employees invested their time, talent, and treasure into the work of Urban Ventures in 2016. Thank you!

The results were amazing

  • 3,600 families increased their level of food security and nutrition knowledge 
  • 31 emerging student leaders received full-tuition college scholarships (more than $ 4M awarded)
  • More than 200 adults were placed into full time jobs with benefits 

It's important to celebrate our progress, but for each success story there are still thousands of people who dream of pursuing higher education, a better job, or a stronger family.

Our work is not done, and Urban Ventures invites you to partner with us in 2017 to ensure we help as many families as possible. Here's where to get started:
