Goya Foods

June 1, 2017- May 31, 2018

The ‘Can Do’ campaign began on June 1, 2017 and will end May 31, 2018. Throughout the course of the year, Goya will feature different product promotions to benefit Feeding America and local food bank members. A minimum of 600,000 pounds of Goya products (rice, beans, canned products, meals, etc.) will be donated to families and individuals throughout the United States who lack access to nutritious, affordable and culturally appropriate meals.

Charity Miles


Feeding America is one of 10 charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile—all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.

Second Harvest Food Bank will receive 65% of revenue generated by the Charity Miles app in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.
