Hormel Plant in Knoxville Hosts Successful Food Drive

The Hormel plant in Knoxville is helping to fill the food shelves in Marion County. Yesterday, plant employees donated hundreds of pounds in food as well as more than $300 in cash donations to the KNIA/KRLS Food Drive. Hormel themselves helped out with an additional $500 for the food drive. All the food and donations will stay in Marion County. Hormel also donated $3000 to the Helping Hands Food Pantry. Plant Manager Troy Hawkshead says that he’s proud of his employees for doing such a great job again. The KNIA/KRLS Food Drive continues tomorrow at Iowa State Savings Bank from 9am-12pm.
