LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CJ Foods, Korea's number one food company and producer of delicious, frozen foods, is giving back to the community with the launch of its CJ Bibigo "Won Ton of Giving" campaign. Spotlighting the company's latest product innovation, the campaign encourages visitors and fans of the CJ Foods Facebook page to join CJ Foods in raising awareness and supporting hunger relief efforts throughout Greater Los Angeles by simply choosing to "Like" the brand's page. Upon reaching the goal of mobilizing 3,000+ fans, the company will donate one ton—or more than 91,000 CJ Bibigo Mini Wontons—to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
"The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is grateful for this partnership with CJ Foods. We encourage friends of CJ Foods and the food bank to join in this campaign that will help to feed all the individuals who count on us throughout Los Angeles County," said Carole Tremblay, food bank chief development officer.
The "Won Ton of Giving" campaign playfully celebrates the recent launch of CJ Bibigo Mini Wontons. Made the Korean way with fresh ingredients in delicate, thin wrappers, these wontons are filled with savory mixtures of vegetables and meat, and contain no artificial flavors. The mini wontons are fully-cooked and can be pan-fried, added to soup or boiled, and are available in three varieties, including Chicken & Vegetable, Chicken & Cilantro and Pork & Vegetable. As with all CJ Foods products, the new mini wontons contain no MSG, preservatives or Trans-fat.
To help make the donation a reality one "Like" at a time, fans and their friends should visit the CJ Foods Facebook page at Facebook.com/CJFoods. The "Won Ton of Giving" campaign will run from Nov. 1- Dec. 31.
"We are honored to partner with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank for the 'Won Ton of Giving' campaign, and encourage everyone to join us in the fight against hunger," said Terry Chi, product manager for CJ Foods.
