Hormel Foods Corporation will donate 55,000 Hormel Compleats microwave meals and more than 11,000 cases of Hormel turkey pepperoni packs to Feeding America to aid in relief efforts for parts of Kentucky and southern Indiana following the recent tornadoes.

“Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this unfortunate hardship,” says Julie H. Craven, vice president of corporate communications at Hormel Foods. “We hope this donation will help to feed those in need.”

Hormel Compleats microwave meals are 10-ounce meals that feature chicken, beef, or turkey as well as vegetables and pasta, potatoes, or rice. They do not need to be frozen or refrigerated and can be microwaved in the tray in 90 seconds.

Pepperoni has been a longtime favorite and a well-known Hormel Foods specialty. Hormel turkey pepperoni has a spicy flavor.

Hormel Foods Corporation is based in Austin, Minnesota, and is a multinational manufacturer and marketer of consumer-branded food and meat products.
