The donation took place during Northwest Harvest’s Home Team Harvest event and will support the food bank’s mission to fight for hungry people across the state of Washington to have access to nutritious food while respecting their dignity and promoting good health.
“Hormel Foods is proud to partner with Safeway to support hunger-relief efforts in the communities served by the company’s 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 Safeway, 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.
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.
