Hormel Foods Corp. announced on Thursday a donation of three semitrailer loads of product to assist with tornado relief efforts in Oklahoma. The donation of 165,000 Hormel Compleats microwave meals will go to Feeding America food banks in Oklahoma City and its surrounding suburbs.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all who were affected by this devastating tornado,” said Julie Craven, vice president of corporate communications at Hormel. “We hope to provide a helpful way to feed the many in need as the difficult process of rebuilding begins.”
Hormel said Compleats are convenient for relief efforts, as they are a source of protein, do not need to be frozen or refrigerated and can be microwaved in the tray in 60 seconds. Additionally, they are fully cooked and can be eaten straight from the package for those without access to electricity.
