Distinguished Service Award (Corporate Partner)
Hormel Health Labs
Hormel Health Labs (HHL) has been a Corporate Partner member of ANFP for over 20 years. During this time, they have been actively engaged in supporting members through their participation in our national and regional events, as volunteer leaders, as a grant funder, and as active marketing partners in several of our programs.
The HHL team has dedicated themselves to supporting students in pursuit of the CDM, CFPP credential. In 2017, they established the Hormel Health Labs Student Grant program through the Nutrition & Foodservice Education Foundation (NFEF). To date, 12 students have been awarded this grant in pursuit of their credential, with another three to be supported this year.
In addition to HHL’s student grant program, they provide additional funding each year to NFEF for general support of its initiatives which benefit CDM, CFPPs and the industry. For the past several years, HHL has provided volunteer leadership on ANFP’s Industry Advisory Council, a seat they have earned due to their high level of support of ANFP. They have been a fixture at the Annual Conference & Expo (ACE) for many years, along with regional events. Overall, HHL has been a strong and steadfast partner for ANFP members and NFEF, and they exemplify the spirit of the Distinguished Service Award for a Corporate Partner.
