Groups Will Assemble Meals for Malnourished Children

Syngenta employees celebrating National Ag Week by packing meals for hungry children.

Syngenta is continuing its commitment to helping ensure global food security by sponsoring a two-day, potato-meal packing event to help feed thousands of hungry children. This Friday and Saturday, more than 500 Syngenta employees, their families and friends, and FFA students will gather at Syngenta in Greensboro, N.C., to pack 175,000 servings of Feed My Starving Children Manna Pack Potato meals in celebration of National Ag Week.

Mary Streett DeMers, senior communications manager for Marketing Services at Syngenta says they understand the nutritional value of the potato-based meals and the incredible need malnourished children have for these packets. MannaPack Potato servings are formulated to prevent starvation in children using dehydrated potatoes, vitamins and minerals.

World Food Prize Ambassador Ken Quinn and former FFA national officers Chase Rose and Laila Hajji will join representatives of the United States Potato Board and potato growers to show their support and participate in the two-day event.
