2021 Update: Indianapolis volunteers participate in Habitat for Humanity's Agriculture Build
Ingredion’s Indianapolis team continued the tradition of participating in Habitat for Humanity’s Agriculture Build during the Indiana State Fair. As in previous years, the new home was constructed on a moveable platform, where visitors observed the construction progress during the 18-day run of the fair. Once completed, the house was moved in its entirety to its new neighborhood.
“This event provides us a unique opportunity to collaborate and build relationships in addition to helping build a new home for a deserving family,” said Mark Macrander, director of specialty grain, North America supply chain. “It’s a great experience to work alongside the new homeowner; we literally help create a new framework that has a direct impact on their quality of life.”
For over a decade, employees from Ingredion’s Indianapolis manufacturing plant and North office have volunteered at the Agriculture Build event. This year, the Company’s specialty grains and plant science group sponsored the event.
