The Hormel Foods Corporation announced Monday that it has donated $5,000 to The Salvation Army and $5,000 to Hot Meals on Wheels to fight hunger in it’s home town.

“Our team is honored to join The Salvation Army and Hot Meals on Wheels to help support hunger relief in our area,” said Clint Walters, Austin plant manager. “I would like to thank our employees, whose dedication and hard work make it possible to help those in need. On behalf of Hormel Foods, we are excited to help do our part in making a difference.”

This is the seventh consecutive year Hormel Foods has given funds to its U.S. manufacturing facilities to share with nonprofits in their respective communities to fight hunger. In 2016, Hormel Foods donated $350,000 to local hunger relief organizations in 35 U.S. communities where it had manufacturing facilities, bringing the program’s total contribution to local hunger relief efforts to more than $2 million thus far. Through this program as well as disaster relief efforts and other donations, Hormel Foods contributed $7.4 million in cash and product donations to help address hunger in fiscal 2016.
