Hormel Foods Helps Fight Hunger in Beloit
June 8, 2012
The Beloit Plant is presenting $5,000 of the donation to the Central Christian Church Care Ministry and $5,000 to Beloit Meals On Wheels.
The Central Christian Church Care Ministry provides a food pantry for more than 100 families in need within the surrounding area. Established in 1971, Beloit Meals On Wheels delivers daily nutritious meals to the homebound elderly, ill, and disabled in the greater Beloit area for a minimal suggested donation. In 2011, the Beloit Plant donated $5,000 to Meals On Wheels.
“Thank you to our employees, whose hard work and commitment to excellence make it possible for Hormel Foods to give to back to our community,” said Scott Ramlo, plant manager, Beloit Plant. “On behalf of the Beloit Plant, we are proud to help the Central Christian Church Care Ministry and Beloit Meals on Wheels continue the great work they are doing to feed families in need.”
This donation is part of the commitment at Hormel Foods to nourish the hungry in the United States one community at a time. For the second straight year, 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.
“We were very happy with the feedback we received last year from our plant managers, employees and the organizations we were able to support through our hunger-relief efforts,” said Julie H. Craven, vice president of corporate communications at Hormel Foods. “We are proud to be making a difference in the communities where our employees live and work.”
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.
