“Hormel Foods is proud to partner with Kroger to support hunger-relief efforts in the communities served by the company’s Kroger stores,” said Stephanie Postma, brand manager, meat products marketing, Hormel Foods. “The Hormel® Cure 81® Hams for Hunger™ program highlights our long-standing relationship with Kroger, and we are honored to work together and make such a substantial contribution for those in need.”
The makers of the Hormel® Cure 81® brand created the Hormel® Cure 81® Hams for Hunger™ program in 1989. The program involves a partnership between Hormel Foods and grocery retailers across the country. Throughout the years, more than $13 million dollars in hams have been donated, feeding tens of thousands of families.
“We are proud to partner with Hormel to feed over 700 families here in Houston,” said Sparkle Anderson, Corporate Affairs Manager for The Kroger Co. “At Kroger, we are continually working toward our goal to end hunger in our communities and eliminate waste in our company by 2025. BakerRipley is a staple in the Houston community and we couldn’t have picked a better recipient for this donation.”
Hormel Foods will donate more than 55,000 hams (retail value of $1.1 million) to charities nationwide through the Hormel® Cure 81® Hams for Hunger™ program this holiday season.
