PLANO, Texas — On Friday, March 19, Market Street will join Hormel Foods to donate approximately 450 hams to North Texas Food Bank. The presentation will take place at 3677 Mapleshade Ln in Plano 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.”
“We are so grateful for the support of companies like Hormel Foods and Market Street that recognize the growing issue of hunger and look for ways to contribute to organizations addressing this complex problem,” said Michael McAfee, Senior Manager of Food Sourcing for the North Texas Food Bank. “Their generous donation of hams will help advance our mission of bridging the hunger gap in North Texas and provide our neighbors with a festive meal this season.”
