Coronavirus Prompts Goya Donation To NYC High School Students

Goya donation, NYC high schools

Goya Foods has donated 18,225 meals to students of six New York City high schools in anticipation of the financial impact caused by the coronavirus epidemic. The Jersey City, New Jersey-based company donated meals to students at Food and Finance High School, High School of Hospitality Management, Facing History High School, Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction, Manhattan Bridges High School and P.S. 138 District 75 School. 

“We understand that this is going to be a tough few weeks for many and we wanted to help support families and students during this time, who often only eat a healthy meal while attending school,” said Bob Unanue, president of Goya Foods, America’s largest Hispanic-owned food company.  “We’re prepared to do our part and help in any way we can.”

Each student at all six high schools will receive a bag filled with a 5-lb. bag of  rice, a 1-lb. bag of black beans, a 1-lb. bag of Goya pink beans, and two 16.9-oz. cartons of coconut water.

“Goya is providing comfort and sustenance in a time of great uncertainty for our students and their families,” said Nan Shipley, board chair of the Food Education Fund. “Goya’s generosity reminds us that in a time of crisis, we all have a role to play to address the needs of at-risk families,”

Goya executives donated the first round of donations to all students at the Food and Finance High School on Friday, March 13.  The remainder of the food donation will be distributed over the next week to students.
