If It’s Good for the Community, Goya is There
As thousands of Chicagoans struggle with the pinch of inflation, The Salvation Army and their corporate sponsors are here to help.
Last week, Goya Foods significantly impacted the lives of many local families by donating 15 thousand pounds of food. That food will help fill the holiday food boxes so many rely on during the Christmas season.
This holiday food box program is expected to serve 12,000 families this December.
The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) division will prepare the boxes the week of December 5th.
Additional items will help supply Salvation Army food pantries and EDS nourishing efforts. The Salvation Army–Goya Foods partnership was formed during the heart of the pandemic when Goya Gives gave 70,000 pounds of food products to The Salvation Army Illinois and Wisconsin Divisions.
Some of this year’s donated items include:
Tender Sweet Peas
Cut Green Beans
French Style Green Beans
Peas & Carrots
Peaches – Halves or sliced
Medium Grain Rice 1 lb.
Canilla White Rice 1 lb.
Aromatic Rice - 12 oz boxes
