Amid inflation, and looming food shortages, Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, announced its commitment to donate another 300,000 pounds of food to Catholic Charities of New York/ Feeding Our Neighbors.
His Eminence Cardinal Dolan helped to distribute bags filled with Goya products and supplies to families in need at St. Jerome’s HANDS Community Center in the Bronx and offered a special blessing on Holy Thursday.
“During a time of crisis, inflation, and looming food shortages, the Goya family has worked courageously and tirelessly to provide nourishing food to those in need around the country and around the globe. We are grateful to have our work and a purpose of rising every morning for God, our families, and our Nation. As a result, throughout the year and especially during this Holy Season, we are proud to present the gift of the fruits of our labor to families in need serviced by Catholic Charities,” said Bob Unanue, President and CEO of Goya Foods.
In late 2020, at the height of the Covid pandemic crisis, Goya donated 300,00 lbs. of food to Catholic Charities.
The past few years have had a devastating impact on families’ health and economic security in New York’s most vulnerable communities, said the company. Goya has been a supporter of Catholic Charities/ Feeding our Neighbors campaign for the past six years, donating a total of over 1.8 million pounds of food to people throughout New York City.
