Hormel Foods, and its current and former team members announced a commitment to donate 200,000 meals to COVID-19 hunger-relief efforts during the company’s virtual live concert event on Friday night featuring Chris Kroeze.

This commitment is in addition to the company’s previously announced $1 million in cash and product donations to help those impacted. The concert was a way to help thank the company’s team members for their continued efforts to provide food for the world during this unprecedented time.

“Our team of nearly 20,000 has continued to work tirelessly as we play a critical role in providing safe, high-quality food during this uncertain time,” said Jim Snee, chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer at Hormel Foods. “This special concert was a way we could thank them for how they have risen to the challenge and continue to produce food with a sense of purpose and pride. I’m proud we are able to continue to help with COVID-19 hunger-relief efforts and of the generosity of our current and former team members. Together, we are donating an additional 200,000 meals to help others in addition to our previously announced $1 million in cash and product donations.”

The 200,000 meals will go to Feeding America and other nonprofit organizations throughout the county.

Hormel Foods has donated more than $50 million in cash and product donations to help others over the last five years.
