Hormel Foods Donation Helps Fight Hunger in Nebraska
06/27/2012 – The Fremont, Nebraska Plant of Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE:HRL) announced that it will donate $5,000 to The Salvation Army in Fremont. The Salvation Army serves the community and administers multiple hunger-relief initiatives. This summer, the organization will coordinate the Summer Food Program to feed children in need during the school break.
“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 Fremont Plant Manager Donnie Temperley. “On behalf of the Fremont Plant, we are proud to help The Salvation Army continue the great work they are doing to feed those 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 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.
The Salvation Army is coordinating a program that brings together local churches and other organizations as part of the Summer Food Program, which is made available from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each weekday. Any child, ages 1 to 18, is invited to the free lunch at The Presbyterian Church, 520 W. Linden Ave., in Fremont. The program will run until Aug. 10.
