“The partnership between Hormel and the United Family to tackle food insecurity strikes at the very heart of what we do here at the West Texas Food Bank,” said Libby Campbell, executive director of the West Texas Food Bank. “We work tirelessly to bring an end to hunger in the Permian Basin, and to have a solid partnership with producers and retailers like Hormel and United makes our jobs just a little easier. I am so grateful to the United Family for all they do to support the West Texas Food Bank, and I know the people we serve are going to be very excited to receive the delicious hams from Hormel.”
