Teammates at eight of our 25 Festival Foods locations are coordinating the delivery of donated hams to food pantries in their communities. Stores involved in this year's effort are located in Somers, Kenosha, Copeland, Eau Claire, Marshfield, Janesville, Fort Atkinson and Madison.
Since 1989, Hormel Foods and its retail partners have donated more than $12 million in hams to those in need. Hopefully you already know that Festival Foods loves giving back to our communities and we're really looking forward to being a part of this ongoing tradition.
"We are honored to partner with Hormel Foods to donate hams across Wisconsin to food pantries this holiday season,” said Mark Skogen, Festival Foods President and CEO.
"There are many people in need this holiday season and we are happy to help in any way possible. We thank Hormel and its partners for their generous donation to Wisconsin families in the communities we serve.”
Festival Foods already delivered over 900 hams to local food pantries in communities they serve to ensure families in need are receiving an extra holiday gift, Skogen said.
"Thank you to all the communities coming together this holiday season to ensure we all have a happy holiday," he said.
