100 Years and Growing: 100 Years and Innovating | 100 Years and Giving | 100 Years and Evolving
How the Giving Program Works
At Wilbur-Ellis, we innovate to help customers be more productive – on the farm and in their businesses. Much of what we do is focused on food – feeding people and animals, and providing ingredients through Connell for many food products around the world.
With that in mind, in November, as the weather gets colder in many parts of the world, we’re asking:
“What is your favorite comfort food or drink – that food or drink that always make you feel good … and what makes it your favorite!
Bonus points for telling us about more than one favorite comfort food or drink.

John Wilbert Santosa, Indonesia (9 to 11)
Since last April, I studied at school by learning online, every day I study online with my PC computer, including sports subjects. I like online lessons because I am at home every day, but I can’t meet and play with my school friends and my teachers at school. That makes me sad and miss seeing them. After the online school is over, in the afternoons I sometimes go cycling or play badminton with my sisters around the house using a mask.
Zheng Yu Cheah, Malaysia (6 to 8)
I couldn’t go to school for some time and was learning via Google Class at home. Now, I have to wear a mask to school, but I am happy I can go to school now. But, there are viruses still and I can’t play with friends. I have to keep distancing with friends and no sport class. Still, I am happy I can go to school. I hope the virus goes away and everyone is safe, so I can attend class of basketball and Wushu.
Vera Hansen, United States (6 to 8)
Actually, we changed to a whole different curriculum. It’s the Weaver curriculum. Also, I get to do Teaching Textbooks on the computers now, and I was already homeschooled. I’m also in third grade now so everything is getting HARDER. We also do recess now. My favorite way to play is with my two cousins BFF’s, Aelea and Norah. I LOVE going on the big trampoline with them. I do like to ride my bike too. I taught myself how to ride with no training wheels, I also showed Aelea the basics, but she basically taught herself too.
Yi En Neo, Singapore (6 to 8)
I have to wear a mask to school. We practice safe distancing in school and I’m separated from my friends by a table shield. There are no more excursion trips organized by the school.
What I like about the new way of going to school is my teacher is coming up with creative things for us to play.
What I don’t like is that I have to wear a mask all the time except when I am having my nap in school. Because it is not comfortable to wear a mask.
Shibani Banerjee, India (6 to 8)
Hi, I am Sachi Banerjee from India. School for us has started online which is fun loving, but we are all prone to technology much more than before. The creativity of knowing what is going around you is much less. I play at my home and love reading novels, ride my bicycle and colour some pictures of cartoons. Everything has changed due to this pandemic. The activity which we used to do in school has been closed and even meeting friends in the playground has been restricted. I miss my school and friends a lot and miss playing with them.
