Goya Foods Provides Aid To Residents In Buffalo, NY


Goya Foods is providing aid by donating 30,000 pounds of food to those affected by the blizzard in Buffalo, New York.

The donation is part of Goya’s commitment to providing disaster relief and humanitarian aid through the Goya Gives initiative. In New York, it has donated millions of pounds of food to help feed thousands of families in times of need since the company’s inception in 1936.

“Our hearts go out to our neighbors in Western New York. As a company, we have always prioritized relief for those in need. It’s part of our DNA. Beyond mass food donations and distribution efforts, we continue to provide extra support when communities need it most,” said Bob Unanue, president and CEO of Goya Foods.

Goya’s distribution facility in Angola, New York, is mobilizing to deliver the donation to community centers throughout the city of Buffalo, with the local support of the Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade of Western New York and Hispanic Heritage Council of Western New York.

This facility has remained open through the severe weather conditions and continues to provide food deliveries to its surrounding cities. Through the coordinated effort of local Goya leaders – Steve Schunk leading production and Carlos Pereira overseeing distribution – its food deliveries remain uninterrupted.

“We are committed to getting food delivered to places where others can’t during a blizzard. As an essential service we are all hands on deck to deliver to every supermarket in need,” Pereira said.

Mayor Byron W. Brown said, “We are grateful for this generous donation, and we appreciate the support Goya Foods has shown the city of Buffalo during our time of need. Our city has been greatly impacted by this historic once-in-a-generation blizzard. As the cleanup process continues, we appreciate all the help and support we continue to receive from organizations like Goya Foods and from state and other municipalities.”
