Hormel Foods, who produces SPAM, has jumped in to help out the survivors of the wildfires:
‘Three truckloads of SPAM products are on their way to the impacted areas with two more trucks following,’ Hormel Foods, the company that owns SPAM, said. ‘In all, the SPAM brand has donated cash and product with a retail value of more than $1,000,000 to directly help those impacted by the wildfires.’
The company said it has partnered with nonprofit group Convoy of Hope to get the cans to where they are needed most.
More SPAM is consumed per person in Hawaii than in any other state:
It’s stacked on a block of rice and wrapped in seaweed to make SPAM musubi, and sold at fast-food chains like McDonald’s in Hawaii. There’s even an annual Waikiki SPAM Jam festival. . .
. . . 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Aloha United Way’s Maui Fire Relief Fund.
Didn’t our John Yoo opine recently on SPAM in Hawaii? I know many of you hold fond memories of SPAM, and may still indulge in it to this day.Published in
