Goya Foods, a Jersey City-based Hispanic-owned food company, announced on Thursday it has donated 200,000 pounds of food to families in Mexico that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The donations was part of Goya’s #GoyaGivesGlobal campaign.

“The pandemic affects us all. When our communities here face a crisis, they also feel it in Mexico. We are closely bound together by our families, culture, and our economies are deeply intertwined. We are and will always be a company of passionate people who care about making a difference, and our promise to continue to help our communities by working together with our neighbors in Mexico,” Bob Unanue, president of Goya Foods, said.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the company has donated a total of 2.5 million pounds of food and 20,000 masks.
