Working for Our Country #GoyaGives
Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in The United States, distributed 10,927 pounds of nourishing food to families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to the Medina County Food Pantry in the town of Hondo, Texas.
“Today’s donation, one of many, brings people together to help others who are in critical need during a time of uncertainty and hardship. We are so grateful to work with community leaders, food banks and organizations who also care about helping to make a difference and provide families with healthy food,” said Bob Unanue, President of Goya Foods.
This donation is part of Goya’s national campaign Working for Our Country #GoyaGives that includes a donation of two million pounds of food to communities throughout the United States, a commitment made by Goya in tribute to the dedication and hard work of 4,000 Goya employees.
“Food donations, like today's generous contribution from Goya, are needed now more than ever as we have seen an increase in food insecurity due to the pandemic. We are truly grateful for this generous donation,” said Kim Davis, City Manager of the City of Hondo, Texas.
Through Goya Gives, a global program committed to promoting the overall well-being of communities through social responsibility, environmental initiatives, and company values, Goya supports each year nearly 300 charitable endeavors, scholarships, and events. In times of desperate need, Goya has always been at the forefront of disaster and humanitarian relief efforts, providing millions of pounds of food worldwide. At the start of the pandemic, the company donated an additional 500,000 pounds of food and 20,000 protective masks to health care providers. During Hurricane Maria Goya donated over 1 million pounds of food to the people of Puerto Rico, in addition to the starving people of Venezuela during governmental unrest, to the people of Haiti during the earthquake, and at home during Superstorm Sandy, and Hurricanes Isaac, Harvey, and Irene. Since 1936, giving back is the heart of Goya and has always been a part of the company’s DNA.
