US processor Hormel Foods has announced a pledge of $1m in cash and product donations to assist non-profits with their efforts during the coronavirus.

The company's monetary and product donations will be made to global, national and local hunger-relief organizations. Feeding America, Convoy of Hope, Conscious Alliance and food and hunger-relief organizations in the company's plant communities will be among those organizations receiving immediate funding and donations.

“First and foremost, I want to recognize our incredible team of production professionals who have risen to the challenge. With a sense of responsibility and pride, they continue to produce food for millions of people who are in the midst of this crisis,”​ said Jim Snee, chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer of Hormel Foods.

“We understand the critical role we play in providing safe and high-quality food for people around the world. We have a responsibility to ensure our products are available when needed, and we are working closely with our retail and foodservice customers to provide a steady supply of products, just as we have done over the last 129 years.

Snee added: “We are a great neighbor in the communities where we live and work and can be counted on to do even more during a time like this. That is why we are so proud to make this $1m pledge to help those who are food insecure during this difficult time.”
