Algona is presenting the donation to the Kossuth County Food Pantry, which is a local charitable organization that distributes food to Algona’s hungry families. The Algona Plant also presented a $5,000 donation to the organization in 2011.
“Thank you to our employees, whose hard work and commitment to excellence make it possible for Hormel Foods to give back to our community,” said Jeremy J. Rummel, plant manager at the Algona Plant. “On behalf of Hormel Foods, we are proud to help the Kossuth County Food Pantry 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 of its 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.
