WILLMAR, Minn., Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jennie-O Turkey Store has partnered with Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen; his wife, Caitlin; and the Thielen Foundation to provide 1,000 turkeys to Minnesota families in need this Thanksgiving season.

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."
