Goya Foods, America’s largest Hispanic-owned food company, will donate 30,000 pounds of Goya products, including canned beans, vegetables, crackers, and nectars, to victims of the earthquake in Ecuador.
“It has been a devastating time for the people of Ecuador and we are diligently working with officials and organizations to ensure that the people who need it the most will directly receive the food,” says Rafael Toro, Director of Public Relations of Goya Foods. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the earthquake and we thank everyone who is helping to make this donation possible.”
The donation is part of the Goya Gives campaign, a series of annual donations that serves to encourage others to participate in the message and act of helping those in need. Goya has a long history of providing aid to those impacted by natural disasters and has made significant donations both at home, including those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, Katrina and Isaac in the United States as well as abroad in Mexico, Haiti, Chile, Peru and El Salvador, among others.
