Have you heard about the SPAMERICAN!™ Tour? Our friends at SPAM® Brand have partnered with Operation Gratitude as their awesome food truck travels cross-country thanking SPAM® fans and honoring those who so bravely serve our country!
While local chefs serve up mouth-watering curations of trendy (and delicious!) SPAM® dishes, each of the 16 tour stops also doubles as an Operation Gratitude letter-writing station – complete with postcards and a specially made “mailbox”!
SPAM® fans across the country are invited to be a part of the letter writing campaign by submitting notes of gratitude online at signup.OperationGratitude.com/SPAM
We were honored to have Colonel Rich Anderson, U.S. Marine Corps (Ret.), show his support when he visited the Naval Station Norfolk stop of the SPAMERICAN!™ tour. Colonel Anderson attended several locations on the tour, and said scores of “fine people wrote letters to our Armed Forces, First Responders and Gold Star families.”
Thank you, Colonel Anderson and family, Operation Gratitude volunteers, and all the Hormel employees and volunteers for encouraging people to write letters at each stop! None of this would have been possible without all your hard work and support.
Not only will those heartfelt notes of gratitude make their way into Operation Gratitude care packages, every letter submitted online at SPAM.com/tour and along the tour counts towards a generous pledge by SPAM® Brand to donate $1 per letter. They have already donated an incredible $50,000 towards our goal of sending the 2 Millionth Care Package in 2018.
We don’t want to forget to send a big “thank you” to Sunny Anderson, Food Network Host and U.S. Air Force veteran, for kicking off the tour in New York City back in April, and for showing her support for the Operation Gratitude cause.
The SPAMERICAN!™ Tour has four stops remaining and will culminate in Minneapolis, MN on August 8th …so, there’s still time to catch the SPAM® truck in action and write your own letters!
You can visit SPAM.com/Tour for the complete tour schedule.
You can find Sunny’s and all the other tour recipes here!
We want to extend our deepest gratitude towards SPAM® Brand, Hormel Foods Corporation, and the countless volunteers and letter writers across the country! Y’all are amazing!!!
And, don’t forget….letters are still being accepted online at signup.OperationGratitude.com/SPAM
