ROCHELLE — Rochelle Foods, the local manufacturing facility owned by Hormel Foods Corporation, donated $10,000 to the Rochelle Foods Hunger Challenge Fund to fight hunger in the Rochelle community.

The Rochelle Area Community Foundation is also providing a $10,000 matching gift to the Rochelle Foods Hunger Challenge Fund. This donation is part of the Hormel Foods Plant Community Donations Program, which gives employees the opportunity to assist local hunger relief organizations and strengthen the communities where they live and work.

In 2011, the facility donated $5,000 to help establish the Rochelle Foods Hunger Challenge Fund with the Rochelle Area Community Foundation, a public charitable organization designed to attract and distribute gifts to benefit the community. The facility also donated $10,000 to the fund in 2012.
