We all know Goya Foods and their catchphrase/slogan, “Si es Goya tiene que ser bueno.” And yes we all add delicious Goya products to our recipes, but did you also know they have a commitment to the community as well?
Just recently, Goya Foods, presented a $75,000 check in support of the Latino Concert Series at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, and announce a food donation of 2,800 pounds to the college’s food pantry for students in need at the INDIA concert with special guest Michael Stuart (which took place on Saturday, May 12, 2018).
“Goya’s support of the Lehman Center concert series and the Lehman College Food Pantry are evidence of Goya’s commitment to nurturing the heart and soul of the Bronx through investments that expand the cultural capital of our community and eradicate food insecurity among our students,” said José Luis Cruz, President of Lehman College.
The Latino Concert Series has attracted iconic performers to the Bronx for more than a decade, showcasing top artists such as Willie Colón, Johnny Pacheco, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Eddie Palmieri, Prince Royce, Jose Alberto, as well as the late Celia Cruz and Tito Puente. Upcoming shows include La Sonora Ponceña; and Tito Rojas, Tito Nieves, and Tito Allen.
