Committed to Our Communities For More Than 80 Years
We feel a great responsibility to the communities we call home. Through targeted philanthropy and employee volunteerism, we aspire to make a meaningful impact to address food insecurity, advance education and support the vitality of the places we work and live.
At Smithfield Foods, “good” doesn’t stop with our products – it’s in everything we do. From donating tens of millions of protein servings to combat food insecurity each year while advancing education and the vitality of our local communities, we’re not just producing good food – we’re doing good work to support our communities.
