Hormel Foods Hunger Relief Efforts

At Hormel Foods, we’re inspired to help others. From cash and product donations to volunteer initiatives, we continually look for ways to do our part in making the world a better place.

We focus our philanthropic efforts on three areas: hunger, education and supporting the local communities where we operate. These areas closely align with our business initiatives, and over the years we’ve learned they are also the areas our employees are most passionate about.

We’re proud that 2016 was a record year for our giving: $10.9 million in cash and product donations. This includes $7.4 million in hunger donations and our donation of 2.7 million cans of SPAMMY® shelf-stable poultry product to help prevent childhood malnutrition in Guatemala.
