MINNEAPOLIS — Cargill recently announced its Cargill Cares Employee Disaster Relief Fund starting with a $15 million contribution. The company said the resource was set up to support the immediate needs of employees during the COVD-19 pandemic and plans to serve as a long-term resource for future events. 

“We are prioritizing our employees’ health and well-being, as they are essential in delivering the food we all need to stay healthy and nourished,” said Michelle Grogg, vice president of corporate responsibility and sustainability development at Cargill. “Our work is essential, but our people and the communities in which we live and work haven’t been immune to the impacts of the virus. With this fund, we hope we can come together in a powerful way to help our colleagues by providing some peace of mind during this incredibly uncertain time.”

Employees, organizations and the general public will be able to contribute funds to support colleagues in their time of need.

The fund will be administered by E4E Relief, an organization that specializes in administering relief funds.
