Goya Donates Meals & Supplies to East Palestine Residents


While Biden visited Ukraine this week, Goya Foods sent critical supplies to East Palestine residents in need of assistance.

In a Monday press release, Goya announced it was sending food and beverages to the people of East Palestine impacted by the train derailment.

“The impact of this disaster is devastating on both the community and the environment. East Palestine has been treated like a forgotten town, and while this may be a small community, it is not a forgotten community by Goya. We are always present during moments of tragedy for all people in need,” said Bob Unanue, President and CEO of Goya Foods.

From PR Newswire:

Goya products will be received and distributed with the help of Chaney Nezbeth, Executive Director of Way Station, a community resource for families and individuals in need.

“Being able to offer the residents of East Palestine food and beverages options that don’t require their tap water for preparation is something no one else had even thought of. The variety of items that Goya is providing is incredible and absolutely needed right now,” said Chaney Nezbeth, Executive Director of Way Station.

In response to the recent #Ohio train derailment, we are sending ready-to-serve Goya food/beverages to the people of #EastPalestine & surrounding areas,” Goya Foods tweeted Tuesday.

“Towns like East Palestine might be a community of deplorables to some, but to us, they’re the heart and soul of America,” Bob Unanue told Neil Cavuto.


FOX Business reported:

With many in the East Palestine community reluctant to eat or drink locally-sourced food or water, Goya Foods has stepped up to provide relief to those residents and surrounding areas who are struggling to stay nourished.

“We’ve always done this,” Goya’s CEO Bob Unanue said of their efforts on “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” Tuesday. “During COVID, we gave out 4.5 million pounds of food… that’s what we do. Our DNA is, we reach out not just because we can, but our food is nutritious.”

On Monday, Goya announced it would send ready-to-serve food and beverages to those impacted by the toxic train derailment. The products are being received and distributed with the help of community resource center Way Station, according to a press release.

“The products that we produce around the country, beans, are a very important, nutritious staple. So we figured we’d provide food to this community, which already contains water. So we’ll put our water in and then ship it to them [as] a ready-made product,” Unanue explained.

Similarly, Benny Johnson showed that we don’t need the government to help our neighbors in times of need.

Johnson gave $1,000 to the 20 closest homes to the East Palestine train derailment site.
