The past few years have had a devastating impact on the health and economic security of families in New York’s most vulnerable communities. Jersey City-based Goya has been a supporter of Catholic Charities’ Feeding Our Neighbors campaign for the past six years, donating a total of over 1.8 million pounds of food to people throughout New York City.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan of the Catholic Church, current archbishop of New York, helped to distribute bags filled with Goya products and supplies to families in need at St. Jerome’s HANDS Community Center in the Bronx and offered a special blessing last week.
“During a time of crisis, inflation, and looming food shortages, the Goya family has worked courageously and tirelessly to provide nourishing food to those in need around the country and around the globe,” Bob Unanue, CEO and president of Goya Foods, said. “We are grateful to have our work and to have a purpose to rise every morning for God, our families and our nation. As a result, throughout the year and especially during this Holy Season, we are proud to present the gift of the fruits of our labor to families in need serviced by Catholic Charities.”
