Syngenta Buys Potatoes to Feed Hungry

YouTube campaign comes to a close.

Syngenta has donated $4,000 to Feeding America, the nation's largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of 205 food banks. The donation signifies the end of the campaign which ran between Oct. 7 and Nov. 20 and allowed consumers to add to the Syngenta donation by viewing the Syngenta Healthy Potato Commercial on YouTube .


Mary DeMers, horticulture communication manager at Syngenta Crop Protection, says they hope many families have a happier holiday thanks to the potatoes purchased from the donation.


Karen Hanner, vice president of cause marketing at Feeding America, says they're always pleased when public organizations can find synergy in what they're doing and giving back to those in need.
