ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — On Wednesday, March 17, Albertsons Market and Market Street will join Hormel Foods to donate approximately 423 hams to Storehouse New Mexico. The presentation will take place at 106 Broadway Blvd SE at 10:00 a.m.
This contribution is part of a much larger donation across the company’s footprint in Texas and New Mexico. In partnership with Hormel, 95 stores have earned more than $58,000 worth of hams, which equates to approximately 3,891 hams, through sales programs.
“We are absolutely floored by the number of hams we are able to donate to our communities this year,” said Scott Nettles, business director for meat and seafood for the United Family. “We hope these hams bring some joy and nourishment to folks as the Easter holiday approaches.”
The Storehouse is New Mexico’s largest food pantry, providing food, on average, for nearly 50,000 people annually. Hunger and poverty are huge societal issues in New Mexico. The state ranks among the worst for food insecurity in the country. Currently, 1 in 3 children do not have enough to eat. The Storehouse relies on donations to feed families in need, and protein is always appreciated. The Storehouse is incredibly grateful for this gift of hams from United.”
Here is the full list of food banks receiving ham donations:
- Food Bank of Abilene, Inc.
- North Texas Food Bank
- High Plains Food Bank
- Storehouse New Mexico
- RoadRunner Food Bank
- Tarrant Area Food Bank
- South Plains Food Bank
