Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned U.S. food company, sponsors ten concerts of Marc Anthony‘s national ‘Cambio de Piel’ tour, and will donate up to 50,000 pounds of food by matching every dollar donated by fans with one pound of food to The Maestro Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Marc Anthony and Henry Cardenas to support the housing and educational needs of orphaned and underprivileged children in developing Latin American countries.

The donation will provide over 5,000 meals to over 200 children at the Orfanato Ninos de Cristo orphanage in La Romana, Dominican Republic.  This orphanage was the first constructed by The Maestro Cares Foundation in 2014, with another under construction currently in Barranquilla, Colombia.  From September 4 through October 11, fans can donate directly to The Maestro Cares Foundation through www.maestrocares.org and can share the #GoyaGives message with friends and family through Facebook and Twitter. “It is a Goya tradition to incorporate a food donation to a local or national charity during every concert tour we’ve been a part of,” says Rafael Toro, Director of Public Relations of Goya Foods. “It is our way of giving back to our community and building upon our beliefs of always helping those who need help the most, whether here in the United States or abroad.  We are fortunate to be able to do so and we will continue to support organizations like The Maestro Cares Foundation who work to make this world a better place.”

The donation is part of the Goya Gives campaign, a series of annual donations initiated in 2011 in celebration of Goya’s 75th anniversary that serves to encourage others to participate in the message of helping those in need.  Goya has donated over four million pounds of food worldwide since the start of the Goya Gives campaign.   “We are deeply grateful for our partnership with Goya Foods and their support of the mission of The Maestro Cares Foundation.  There is no better feeling than to look into the faces of the beautiful children at the orphanage and know that they are well cared for and well fed,” states Henry Cardenas, co founder of the foundation.
