AUSTIN, Minn., January 27, 2022 /CSRwire/ - Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL), a global branded food company, recently matched $10,000 in donations made to Slice Out Hunger through the nonprofit organization’s giving season fundraising campaign.

We look forward to our continued partnership to help others.”
