During our anniversary year, Bueno Foods will be celebrating our anniversary by giving back to the community.
University of New Mexico Hospital Give Back Event
Educational Grants for Classroom Books
On our anniversary date May 18, we gave away 7000+ packages of GRANDMA’S® Tortillas and 7000+ packages of Hatch Autumn Roast® Green Chile to all the frontline healthcare workers, staff, etc. at UNMH in Albuquerque.
“It has been a difficult year for healthcare workers and we want to thank them for their service and their perseverance and give back to those who have given so much,” said Ana Baca, VP Communications & Marketing.
Bueno will also give $7,000 in flash grants to teachers for books in classrooms across New Mexico. The Golden Apple Foundation will administer the grants. https://goldenapplenm.org/
Giving back to the community has always been a core value of the company and literacy and education have been top priorities. “We come from a long line of teachers including our mom, grandmother and many aunts and uncles and we know how critical educators are to a healthy society,” said Ana Baca. “We want to celebrate the immense contribution of teachers by helping them to get books into the hands of children and to share the wonderful world of reading with their students!”
