Goya Donates 30,000 Pounds of Food to Feeding South Florida

Goya Foods is helping South Florida’s impoverished community by providing about 30,000 pounds of food to the Feeding South Florida organization.

A truck from Goya dropped off 30,000 pounds of food at Feeding South Florida‘s distribution center in Pembroke Park.

“All the food you see here is donated by the community or by the federal government,” Feeding South Florida President and CEO Paco Velez said. “Most of it is really the community coming forward and helping out their neighbors.”

The donation is a new “Can Do” campaign initiated by Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned company in the United States.

The company hopes to provide 1.25 million meals across the country over the next six months.

“Every time the customer buys one of the items that we have here, we will donate those items or part of those items to the community,” Goya Foods of Florida General Manager Hector Mora said.

Smaller community organizations and nonprofit groups go to Feeding South Florida’s warehouse to pick up food for those in need.
