Hormel Foods Corp. has donated a semi-trailer load of product to assist with tornado relief efforts in Little Rock, Ark. The donation of Hormel Compleats microwave meals, Skippy Natural dark chocolate peanut butter spread and Hormel 2Good smoothies will go to the Arkansas Rice Depot in Little Rock.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all who have been affected by these devastating tornadoes,” said Julie H. Craven, VP of corporate communications at Austin, Minn.-based Hormel Foods. “We hope to provide a helpful way to feed the many in need as the difficult process of rebuilding begins.”

In addition, the Skippy Foods location in Little Rock is donating 3,400 pounds of Skippy creamy peanut butter and another 700 pounds of Skippy Natural dark chocolate peanut butter spread. The facility also is collecting food and monetary donations from employees and contributing $1,000 to the American Red Cross.

Hormel Compleats microwave meals are 10-oz. meals that feature chicken, beef or turkey as well as vegetables and pasta, potatoes or rice. Convenient for relief efforts, they are a source of protein, do not need to be frozen or refrigerated and can be microwaved in the tray in 60 seconds. Additionally, these meals are fully cooked and can be eaten straight from the package for those without access to electricity.

Skippy creamy peanut butter is shelf-stable with 7g of protein per serving.

Skippy Natural dark chocolate peanut butter spread combines dark chocolate with the leading brand of natural peanut butter, with 6g of protein per serving and 60 percent less sugar than the leading chocolate hazelnut spread, according to Hormel.

Hormel 2Good shelf-stable smoothies are made with Greek yogurt and have 8g of protein.

Arkansas Rice Depot, the only statewide food bank in Arkansas, distributes disaster relief kits and supplies to those affected in emergency situations.
