PFFJ Farms, the local subsidiary owned by Hormel Foods Corporation, announced a donation of $10,000 to help fight hunger in Snowflake and surrounding communities.
Donations of $5,000 will go to the Silver Creek Senior Citizens Council and the Shepherd’s Kitchen and Thrift of White Mountains.
“It is our privilege to support these great organizations and help their efforts in the fight against hunger in our community,” said Susan Howard, human resources manager at PFFJ. “Our employees and the company are excited to continue fighting hunger in our area.”
“We are committed to helping those in need in our community,” added Jose Rojas, vice president of farm operations at PFFJ. “Our employees are proud to do our part to help these organizations feed families.”
PFFJ also donated a total of $10,000 to these organizations in 2014 and in 2015.
For the sixth consecutive year, Hormel Foods is giving funds to U.S. manufacturing facilities, bringing the program’s total contribution to local hunger relief efforts to more than $1 million thus far. In 2016, the company will provide 40 plant locations with funds to continue the program.
