Hunt Valley-based spice maker McCormick & Company Inc. has committed more than $1 million to supporting food banks in nearly 20 countries where they operate, as well as local restaurants and hospitality workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has also called upon the community and other organizations to join them in providing critical financial assistance.
McCormick’s support for food banks continues following a hunger relief campaign in 2019 which provided more than 1.3 million meals in honor of the company’s 130th anniversary.
The company is also teaming up with CORECares in partnership with its Old Bay and McCormick for Chefs brands to establish the Maryland Restaurant Relief Fund, which will provide grants to local restaurant operators in Maryland, as well as the United Way Hospitality Cares Pandemic Response Fund in partnership with its Zatarain’s and McCormick for Chefs brands to help support hospitality workers and restaurants in New Orleans.
Within the U.S. and internationally, McCormick has donated to additional organizations aiding front-line healthcare workers and emergency responders.
