Makers of HORMEL® COMPLEATS® Brand to Match Donations for Meals on Wheels America Holiday Campaign
The No Time to Wait campaign, which launches on Black Friday, focuses on the 9 million seniors across America that face the threat of hunger.
“We’re extremely proud to partner with Meals on Wheels America to help fight senior hunger this holiday season,” said Meghan Baumann, brand manager at Hormel Foods. “Senior hunger impacts one in six seniors across the country and the Hormel® Compleats® brand is doing its part to make sure we can feed those in need.”
The matching donation is the latest component of the Hormel® Compleats®brand’s partnership with Meals on Wheels America to support their hunger relief efforts. During September and October, Hormel Foods donated $1 for every Hormel® Compleats®product sold, resulting in $75,000 being donated to the organization. Hormel Foods also gave all new Meals on Wheels volunteers a coupon for a free Hormel® Compleats® product during their recruiting drive this summer.
“We’re honored and delighted to partner again with the Hormel® Compleats® brand during this holiday season to support vulnerable seniors,” said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO of Meals on Wheels America. “Through this generous matching gift, their support will not only help make an impact in the lives of those who need it most, it will inspire others to do the same. On behalf of the more than 2.4 million seniors served by Meals on Wheels programs nationwide, we are truly grateful.”
The partnership with Meals on Wheels America builds on the Hormel Foods’ longstanding commitment to address hunger. Hormel Foods collaborates with retailers, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to help with hunger relief efforts around the world. Through its programs, disaster relief efforts and other donations, Hormel Foods contributed $7.8 million in cash and product donations to help address hunger in fiscal year 2017.
