Goya Foods donated 40,000 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Delaware this morning as part of the Goya Gives ‘Can Do’ campaign. The donation is part of the first installment of the 1.5 million pounds of food (1.25 million meals) raised over the course of six months that will go to Feeding America and will be distributed to families and individuals throughout the United States.
“The Can Do campaign is one of the many ways that Goya gives back and helps to bring people together to do good for our communities,” said Bob Unanue, President of Goya Foods. “We are grateful for the work of our local food banks who have the means to distribute good food to those who lack the access to nutritious, affordable and culturally appropriate meals.”
The ‘Can Do’ campaign is a yearlong series of consumer product promotions that was launched in June 2017 and ends June 2018. Each month throughout the course of the year, Goya has featured a different product that consumers can purchase to participate in the overall donation. For every GOYA® product purchased during the designated month, Goya will donate additional products to Feeding America.
