Albertsons Market Donates Almost 4,000 Hams to Food Banks Across the Region, Roadrunner Food Bank Receives 396

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — On Friday, March 19, Albertsons Market will join Hormel Foods to donate approximately 396 hams to the Roadrunner Food Bank. The presentation will take place at 5840 Office Blvd. NE. at 11:00 a.m.

This contribution is part of a much larger donation across the company’s footprint in Texas and New Mexico. In partnership with Hormel, 95 stores have earned more than $58,000 worth of hams, which equates to approximately 3,891 hams, through sales programs.

“We are absolutely floored by the number of hams we are able to donate to our communities this year,” said Scott Nettles, business director for meat and seafood for the United Family. “We hope these hams bring some joy and nourishment to folks as the Easter holiday approaches.”

“Protein donations like these wonderful hams are so important to people facing hunger.  They provide nutrition and a source of food that helps create well-balanced meals and a well-rounded diet,” said Mag Strittmatter, president and CEO of Roadrunner Food Bank. “March is National Nutrition Month, and accepting this special food donation complements the many types of food items we can provide to people experiencing hunger all across New Mexico.  On behalf of the people we serve, thank you Albertsons Market for your partnership and generosity.  Your involvement in our work makes a difference!”
