Advancing global food security is at the heart of what we do
At OCI, advancing global food security is at the heart of what we do, with our nitrogen fertilizer products providing the key nutrient for crops.
As part of our commitment to help address food security concerns, we are proud to provide meaningful support to World Central Kitchen (WCK) a nonprofit organization that is first to the frontlines, providing fresh meals in responses to crises around the world, while working to build resilient food systems with locally led solutions.
As a first investment, OCI has made a $1.5 million donation to assist World Central Kitchen in mobilizing to cook and serve 500,000 meals to people in need. This donation will support the WCK Relief Team in continuing their work around the world, for example, in the islands affected by Hurricane Fiona (Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos), in the Ukraine, in Pakistan as the country recovers from record-breaking flooding, and along the coast of Alaska after Typhoon Merbok.
“This donation will be meaningful in helping WCK serve comforting meals to survivors of disasters, quickly and effectively,” said Erin Gore, WCK’s Senior VP for Development. “We know that good food provides not only nourishment, but also comfort and hope, especially in times of crisis.”
