Goya Gives, the Goya Foods initiative continues. Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, donated 2,500 pounds of food to Catholic Charities of Boston in celebration of the Puerto Rican Festival of Massachusetts on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.
“For Goya, we always strive to do our part to support our communities and encourage others to do the same. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this year’s festival, who work hard to bring the rich culture of Puerto Rico to Massachusetts, than by providing healthy food to people who need it the most,” said Rafael Toro, Director of Public Relations of Goya Foods.
The donation is part of Goya Gives, a global initiative committed to supporting local communities through social and environmental causes. Goya has donated millions of pounds of food to organizations worldwide and continues to support over 300 organizations, events and cultural institutions. “It is an honor to kick off our Puerto Rican Festival weekend by partnering up with Goya and their Goya Gives initiative in the continuous effort of giving back to our communities,” said Edwin Alicea, President of the Puerto Rican Festival of Massachusetts.
Goya’s annual food donations also serve to encourage consumers to participate in the message and act of helping those in need. Consumers can share the #GoyaGives message with friends and family through Facebook, Instagram y Twitter @goyafoods.
