We invite you to join us in standing up to Cargill, a global agribusiness giant touching every aspect of our food from farm to fork. United, our food movements can reach the scale required to challenge Cargill’s corporate food regime that has prioritized profit over health and sustainability for decades.
Whether you're one of the 3,200 companies that do business in California with at least $100 million in worldwide gross receipts, or a consumer that buys products from anywhere other than your local mom and pop shops, you better check this out.
Last week, over 40 Minnesota residents made a citizens’ arrest of Cargill, Inc. in front of the company's downtown Minneapolis office at the Grain Exchange. I walked away from the event struck with inspiration and hope.

Cargill tries to employ a 'too big to fail' analysis of their role in fighting world hunger, but it is the research of multiple studies that show that organic agriculture and agroecology have a better chance of created food security and solving the problems of hunger than the corporate model profiteering from crisis to crisis.
