Our ‘communities’ are paying high price
This letter is short and sweet.
ConAgra does not live up to its persona that it is community oriented. Visit their website below – www.conagrafoods.com – and see the false statements they make.
This is one of the statements they make. “At ConAgra Foods, we understand it’s not enough to simply provide products that deliver outstanding taste, nutrition and value. We must also demonstrate an unwavering dedication to doing what’s right, finding better ways to be a good steward of our environment and giving back to the communities we serve.”
Maybe we should write letters, post it on social media, put it in local papers to notify the people who ConAgra works for that they do not care for the community they come into. That their idea of giving back to the community is taking what they can from the area and then shutting it down and move on to the next place.
Let their brands, such as Peter Pan, Banquet dinners, Marie Callender’s to name a few, know what this company is like. These are some of the places ConAgra works; for more on their website. You can write to them explaining what they are doing and how they operate. Maybe if you hit them where their wallet is you may get their attention.
They could care less about how you feel or that your family no longer has an income. It’s the bottom dollar for them, so show them the bottom line-boycott as much as you can and pick one or two companies out, write them a letter explaining the way they operate and you do not want to purchase any products that ConAgra is involved in.
It’s better than begging a company that has shown a total disrespect for this community.
