What does Hormel Foods do to give back to the community?

At Hormel Foods, we’re inspired to help others. From cash and product donations to scholarships and volunteer initiatives, we continually look for ways to do our part in making the world a better place.

We focus our philanthropic efforts on three areas: hunger, education and supporting the local communities where we operate. These areas closely align with our business initiatives, and over the years we’ve learned they are also the areas our employees are most passionate about.

We are pleased to report that we contributed $8.5 million in cash and products to help others in 2021. This included $6.6 million in hunger-relief donations (or more than 8.4 million individual meals*), our donation of 2.1 million cans of SPAMMY® (a shelf-stable poultry product to help prevent childhood malnutrition in Guatemala) and more than $960,000 to support educational institutions and our Inspired Pathways program students.
