Seneca Foods' mission is to feed the world safe and nutritious products that are valued and enjoyed by families everywhere.
Relief & Charitable Programs
We view the communities we serve as our extended family, and do all we can to ensure fewer people go hungry. Over the years, we have donated millions of dollars’ worth of products to charitable programs such as Feeding America, Habitat for Humanity, Second Harvest, and Foodlink. These organizations help tackle tremendous issues such as food insecurity through networks of food banks.
As a leader in the food industry, we also coordinate product donations on a national level to organizations in need. But many of our closest neighbors don't have the means to adequately feed themselves and their families, so we include special outreach to support the local community organizations in areas in which our employees work and live.
When national disasters strike, Seneca Foods is always there with food products for those in need. Seneca is proud to work hand in hand with FEMA in providing emergency relief food to those that are involved in disasters.
Many of our employees also participate in various annual charitable events individually or as a team, including The American Cancer Society Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Additionally, the Seneca Foods Foundation focuses on programs related to youth development, giving priority to those which service youth in communities where we have an operating facility or substantial presence.
Many of our employees donate their time, helping their communities in civil service or volunteer capacities, such as:
- 4H Youth Organization
- The Boys & Girls Clubs of America
- Scouting programs
Student Internship Program
We believe that it is very important to promote the education of students who are studying in the fields of food and nutrition. We have an internship program with local colleges to identify, develop and train potential college graduates with the skills necessary to succeed in these fields.
