River Valley Regional Food Bank Director Tracy Engel received Hormel Foods’ “Hometown Hero” Award in a ceremony on Wednesday, June 9 at the Hormel Foods/Planter Peanuts facility in Fort Smith.

The Hometown Hero award, a hockey-style jersey, was unveiled in 2019 as a way to recognize people and organizations across the country who positively impact their communities. Today, our director, Tracy Engel, was bestowed with that honor and was gifted a coveted “Hometown Hero” hockey jersey, presented to her by John Forsythe, Hormel’s vice president of operations, and local plant manager Kelly Tiffee, as a recognition of her work and that of the food bank’s work and success in our community.

The award came with an additional $5,000 contribution from the company, which will help the food bank provide 50,000 meals to our community. “We are honored to have Hormel Foods/Planters as an incredible corporate partner,” Engel said. “Our long-standing relationship has led to a great partnership with the company. We appreciate Hormel/Planter’s dedication to fighting hunger in the River Valley and are grateful for their continued support.”
