Hormel Foods Announces Record Year of Giving

Oct 11, 2017 11:45 AM ET

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, our donation of 2.7 million cans of SPAMMY® shelf-stable poultry product to help prevent childhood malnutrition in Guatemala, and more than $826,000 in education donations.
