Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) today announced it has donated over 37,000 cases (600,000+ cans) of shelf-stable food products to Convoy of Hope for disaster- and other hunger-relief efforts around the world. A portion of the products donated were sent to Hawaii to help with volcano disaster-relief efforts.
“Convoy of Hope has been an excellent partner to work with for our disaster- and hunger-relief efforts,” said Kelly Braaten, manager of external communications at Hormel Foods. “As a food company, we are inspired to do our part to help end hunger and food insecurity. This donation is a testament to our ongoing commitment.”
