Since being founded in 1936, Goya has received awards and recognitions for its social responsibility and worldwide support of over 250 non-profit organizations that promote and sustain community wellness and the advancement of the Hispanic culture. The company has also donated millions of pounds of food to victims of various disasters worldwide including Hurricanes Sandy, Isaac, and Irene, and the earthquakes in Haiti and Ecuador.
In 2011, President Barack Obama honored Goya for its continued success and commitment to the Hispanic community, the only company to ever be so honored by the president. The following year, Goya collaborated with First Lady Michelle Obama and the USDA to launch MyPlate/ MiPlato campaign, a national health initiative to help educate Americans on how to eat healthy.
Goya has been a Literacy Advance supporter since 2010, sponsoring the Reader Cup, Larry Dierker's Celebrity Golf Tournament for some years before also supporting Scrabble in the City.
In 2016, Goya added sponsorship of our Opening Opportunities Breakfast, expanding their support even further.
Thank you Goya for your steadfast commitment to literacy in Houston!
