Hormel Foods Donation Helps Fight Hunger in Alma
April 28, 2011
Hormel Foods is donating $5,000 to the Community Health Ministry, a local charitable organization that distributes food to Alma’s hungry families.
“As a food company with deep roots in Alma, we feel it is important to help fight hunger in our community,” said Carl H. Haga, plant manager, Hormel Foods Alma Plant. “We hope this donation will help the Community Health Ministry continue the great work they are doing to feed the families in need in Alma.”
This donation from the Alma Plant is part of the commitment at Hormel Foods to nourish the hungry in the United States one community at a time. The company is giving funds to more than a dozen U.S. manufacturing facilities to share with nonprofits in their respective communities to fight hunger.
“Hormel Foods is committed to combating the persistence of hunger in the United States,” said Julie H. Craven, vice president of corporate communications at Hormel Foods. “Each community has its own challenges, which is why we believe our plants can work with organizations on a grassroots level to help meet the residents’ needs and end hunger.”
In addition to its hunger relief efforts in these communities, Hormel Foods is committed to helping those in need throughout the world. Through its “On Our Way to Ending Hunger” program, Hormel Foods collaborates with retailers, nonprofits and the government on hunger relief efforts; nourishes the hungry in the United States and abroad; and motivates individuals and corporate partners to take action to fight hunger.
