Washington, DC--The National Consumers League (“NCL”) and Del Monte Foods Inc. (“Del Monte”) look forward to working together to further the important goals of supporting consumers, addressing hunger and food insecurity, and maximizing nutrition awareness.  Both NCL and Del Monte value giving back to their communities.  As NCL and Del Monte forge a consumer-focused alliance for the future, Del Monte has agreed to continue its commitment to consumers and nutrition awareness by providing an in-kind donation to certain local food banks and other organizations as a supplement to its regular donations.  These organizations provide crucial assistance to residents of the D.C. metropolitan area especially in times of need.  NCL thanks Del Monte for working with our organization and its support of NCL’s mission.
