Hormel Foods Canada Donates more than 75,000 Pounds of Food to Second Harvest Partner Agencies Across Canada to Help Feed Those in Need
“We are so proud to be able to help people struggling with hunger,” said Luis Nieto, Vice President Americas at Hormel Foods International Corporation. “The COVID-19 pandemic has added a further challenge to the already hard situation for those struggling with hunger. By partnering with Second Harvest, we are able to get these protein-rich products to people who need it.”
“High-protein foods are vital to health but are among the most difficult and expensive to access, both for people on low income and the frontline food programs that serve those vulnerable populations,” said Lori Nikkel, CEO, Second Harvest. “Hormel’s generous donation will enable our program partners to bolster their nutritional offerings during these challenging times, and we thank Hormel wholeheartedly for their support.”
The donation is in addition to the many philanthropic cash and product donations Hormel Foods Canada makes every year.
