“On behalf of the Montevideo plant, we are proud to help the Chippewa County Food Shelf continue to fight hunger in Montevideo and the county,” said Nathan Weber, plant manager at Montevideo. “Hormel Foods and our employees here in Montevideo are committed to helping local families in need and making a difference in our community.”
This donation is part of the commitment at Hormel Foods to nourish the hungry in the United States one community at a time. During 2011, the company donated funds to more than a dozen U.S. manufacturing facilities to share with nonprofits in their respective communities to fight hunger. In 2012, the program is expanding to more than 20 communities in which Hormel Foods and its subsidiaries operate processing facilities.
“We are thrilled about the positive impact we were able to make in 2011 in the communities where we live and work, and we are equally as excited about the growth of the program in 2012,” said Julie H. Craven, vice president of corporate communications at Hormel Foods.
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.
