Hy-Vee and Twin Cities Salvation Army Partner to Give Away 5,700 Hams

This holiday season, Hy-Vee Inc. partnered with the Twin Cities Salvation Army to hand out more than 5,700 Hormel® Cure 81® hams to families in need. The donation, valued at approximately $170,000, represents 57,000 pounds of ham.

The food was provided during the Salvation Army’s five annual Toy Shop events in December, where people picked up free toys for their children. With the help of Hy-Vee, those in need now have a free ham to complete their holiday meal. Hy-Vee received the hams through a partnership with Hormel Foods. This is the largest donation Hormel Foods has ever provided to Hy-Vee through its charitable program.
