Being a good corporate citizen means doing our part every day to lift up our communities and to use our size and position as a global branded food company to make a difference through our philanthropic pillars of education, food security and community support. We couldn’t be more excited to kick off our first spotlight charities campaign of 2021 through our Inspired Giving platform that focuses on these areas.
The featured organizations for the campaign are the Savory Institute, Word Central Kitchen and Big Brothers Big Sisters International (see more information about each of these organizations below). Hormel Foods will match team member and retiree donations to these organizations (up to $5,000 total for each charity) through May 28, 2021. Your donation dollars go even further by participating in the campaign due to the company match so don’t miss out on this opportunity to support important causes.
The mission of the Savory Institute is to facilitate the large-scale regeneration of the world’s grasslands and the livelihoods of their inhabitants, through holistic management. According to the organization, regenerating ecosystems with a holistic approach requires not just land managers and animals; it requires conscious consumers, committed philanthropists, passionate advocates and visionary organizations all doing their part to support the boots-on-the-ground making a difference. Donations to this organization help support the Savory Global Network of learning hubs and educators, and as it grows, more farmers and ranchers receive holistic management training and more acreage is regenerated.
