April 8th, 2019

Goya Foods, in partnership with the New Jersey Devils, and Prudential Center donated 63,356 pounds of food to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, as part of its annual Day of Service. On Tuesday, April 3, 2019 at 10:00 a.m., 30 Goya, New Jersey Devils, and Prudential Center employees, along with Devils Alumni members including Bruce Driver, Grant Marshall and Colin White volunteered their time to sort and pack a portion of the 63,356-
pound donation (equal to over 52,796 meals) at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

The bags of meals will then be distributed to families in need throughout New Jersey. The New Jersey Devils hosted three food drives during home games at Prudential Center and collected a total of 30,265 pounds of canned goods from Devils fans. As part of Goya’s sponsorship
of Prudential Center and the company’s commitment of supporting the community through its charitable arm, Goya Gives, Goya has matched the Devils’ fan food drive, donating 31,000 pounds of food to generate a total of 63,356 pounds of food.
