Goya Foods and the National Association of Supermarkets hosted the event “Taste of Latinoamerica” within the lunches organized by the Food Education Fund to benefit the students of the Food and Finance High School (FFHS), the only public high school in New York focused on gastronomy.
The luncheon, which featured popular ethnic dishes made with Goya products, was fully prepared and led by students of New York’s Food and Finance High School (FFHS). Funds raised from the event also benefited the public high school, located in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan.
As part of Goya’s support of the FEF, the company established an annual culinary competition in New York, along with scholarships for FFHS students. Goya also provides product donations for the School Grounds Cafe, a student-run business at the school.
“We couldn’t be prouder to be a partner of the Food Education Fund,” said Bob Unanue, CEO of Goya. “It’s amazing to see how motivated and engaged the students are with the incredible support and team of the Fund.” Goya takes great pride in making a difference in students’ lives, Unanue said.
