This time, ADM has donated $50,000 toward a future exhibit.

“We have this exhibit called Farm to Market,” said Kidzeum Board President Rachel Thomson. “It falls right in line with [ADM’s] mission of educating and bringing products that are harvested and converting them into household products in a healthy and safe way for families to use to lead healthier lives.

The Kidzeum has so far raised about $4.7 million, in addition to a lot of in kind donations. It’ll be located on east Adams Street in the former Schnepp Barnes printing building.
