Adam and Caitlin Thielen, along with their sons, Asher and Hudson, were on hand today to distribute the Jennie-O® turkeys to families.

"Teaming up with organizations like Jennie-O and the Salvation Army for today's giveaway was a natural fit as they share many of the values that we do," said Adam Thielen. "With Jennie-O based right here in Minnesota and the fact that Caitlin and I were born in Minnesota, it's especially wonderful to see us all come together to give back to the communities that have given us so much over the years."

Jennie-O and its parent company, Hormel Foods, are committed to alleviating food insecurity, according to Steve Lykken, president of Jennie-O.

"Thanksgiving is a time when we naturally think of those who need a helping hand, but our work doesn't end with the holidays," he said. "As a food company, it's our privilege to play a part in feeding the world, including those who are unable to purchase our products."
