THE GOOD WE DO IN EDUCATION
In 2020, Smithfield Foods’ long-standing commitment to scholarships and educational grants totaled nearly $4 million in the United States alone. Those donations go to funding programs like An Achievable Dream, which is leveling the playing field for children in low-income communities. Lashondra’s a testament to this good work, and she’s putting in work of her own to give back.
THE GOOD WE DO IN EQUITABLE AGRICULTURE
Smithfield Foods has pledged $10 million over the next three years to build a stronger, more inclusive agricultural future by financially and technically supporting America’s minority farmers. This program ensures capital and confidence for folks like Aaron Blackmon, who’s taking over this family farm and taking it into the future.
THE GOOD WE DO IN COMBATING HUNGER
As a global protein company, hunger relief is the cornerstone of Smithfield Foods’ social purpose and a significant focus of our community efforts. In 2020, we committed to donating 100 million servings of protein through our Helping Hungry Homes initiative by 2025, helping people in need like Megan — who’s now returning the favor.
