Hormel Foods - Partner of the Year


Hormel Foods began its partnership with The Robert D. and Billie Ray Center in 2001. With an initial connection through the Hy-Vee Kids Triathlon, Hormel Foods has become an integral part in expanding our mission and goals across the state of Iowa.

Joe Fleskoski and the Hormel Foods team deepened their relationship and commitment to our work in 2010 with their support of our Parent’s Guide to Teaching Good Character.

With Hormel Foods financial support, The Ray Center has printed and distributed more than 70,000 Parent’s Guides to Teaching Good Character. These guides are distributed to families across the state of Iowa at libraries, schools, and special events.

Hormel Foods has a tradition of giving back to the communities they serve. Their commitment to our organization is reflective of their integrity as a business leader in our community and across the nation.

Congratulations to Hormel Foods, the 2016 Partner of the Year recipient!
