Del Monte strives to be a good neighbor and responsible citizen by supporting the communities where our employees live and work.
We provide both direct financial support as well as product donations to assist a diverse set of philanthropic organizations. We are proud to support our valued partners, whose missions align with our own Company Vision—Nourishing Families. Enriching Lives. Every Day™.—and promote health, wellness and stronger family connections.
In 2010, we contributed $3.6 million to charitable organizations and 3 million lbs. of product to Feeding America.
To further support our communities and employees, we offer employees the option to take one paid day off per year to volunteer for the non-profit organization of their choice. Employees may also request and receive a matching donation to their charitable financial contributions.
Del Monte supports organizations that are strategically aligned with the Companys vision and benefit the communities where Del Monte offices and facilities are located. Please click here to apply for a financial donation.

Del Monte gives back to our community — including our very first community. We played a major role in revitalizing the historical waterfront area of San Francisco — THE CANNERY at Del Monte Square.
THE CANNERY at Del Monte Square is one of San Francisco's most treasured places. Located at the foot of Columbus Street overlooking the San Francisco Bay, and originally built in 1907, THE CANNERY was once the location of a Del Monte peach cannery, which was the largest in the world.
