July 18, 2013
“The commitment to quality from all of our employees – day in and day out – make it possible for our plant to help Low Income Ministry continue their great work in our community,” said Steven J. Weers, plant manager, Fremont Plant. “Once again, we are honored to present this donation to them.”
For the third consecutive year, Hormel Foods is giving funds to U.S. manufacturing facilities to share with nonprofits in their respective communities to fight hunger. In 2012, Hormel Foods donated $220,000 to local hunger relief organizations in more than 20 U.S. communities where it has manufacturing facilities.
“We’ve seen really great success in the last two years with this program and assist our plant communities in local hunger relief efforts,” said Julie H. Craven, vice president of corporate communications at Hormel Foods. “We are committed to helping fight hunger in the areas where we live and work. It’s with great excitement that we continue the program throughout 2013.”
Hormel Foods is helping those in need both in the U.S. and internationally. Through its On Our Way to Ending Hunger program, the company collaborates with retailers, nonprofits and the government on hunger relief efforts; nourishes the hungry in the U.S. and abroad; and motivates individuals and corporate partners to take action to fight hunger.
