Donate an Acre to Feed The Hungry
Buffett and other organizers planned to announce the "Invest an Acre" initiative Thursday. It will encourage farmers around the nation to donate profits from the sale of 1 acre's crop to the charity Feeding America, which will use the money to support food banks in rural communities where advocates say malnutrition is a serious — if often overlooked — scourge.
Every little bit counts.
"He's always said you're never going to bat 1,000 if you try something difficult, but it's better to strike out a few times than ... always playing it safe," Buffett said. "I can't think of any better group in this country than farmers that would want to help hungry people. That's what we do — we grow food."
