Papillion Foods, the local manufacturing facility owned by Hormel Foods Corporation, announced that it has donated $10,000 to the NeighborGood Community Pantry (neighborgoodpantry.org) to help fight hunger in the community as part of the company’s Hunger Action Month efforts. Papillion Foods has donated funds to this organization for two consecutive years.
“As a food company, fighting hunger is near and dear to the hearts of our entire team,” said Ed Finnegan, plant manager Papillion Foods. “Our inspired and dedicated team members make it possible for us to help those in need. We are proud to join NeighborGood Community Pantry in fighting hunger in our community.”
This is the 12th consecutive year Hormel Foods has given funds to its locations to share with nonprofits in their respective communities to fight hunger.
