Goya Foods recently donated 82,000 pounds of food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida as part of the Goya Gives ‘Can Do’ campaign, and in the name of Goya retailer, Sedano’s Supermarkets. 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 Frank Unanue, President of Goya Foods of Florida. “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 launched in June 2017 and ending in 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.
Goya Foods of Florida executives along with Orlando retail partner, Sedano’s Supermarket, volunteered their time to sort, pack and deliver the 82,000-pound donation to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
Goya Foods of Florida will be providing 270,000 pounds of food to 10 different food banks across the southeast.
