After the Goya Foods CEO praised President Donald Trump at a July 9 meeting at the White House, online users posted footage of themselves throwing away Goya Food products as part of the #BoycottGoya protest.

Footage posted by New York City Instagram user @ray.hungria on July 10 shows him tossing several Goya Foods cans into a trash can in his kitchen.

Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue reportedly attended an event at the White House to announce a donation of 1 million cans of chickpeas and 1 million pounds of other food to food banks.

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” Unanue was reported as saying.

    To think this guy could have helped alleviate all the crime in New York (According to Alexandria Ocasio) by giving the food to all the people shop lifting bread. Sad to see food go to waste when so many people could use it.

    It figures. It would never occur to people of this type to donate to a food bank.

    I hope that CEO Unanue reads the comments to see how many more of us support him. This article will only increase his sales.

    Throwing away perfectly good food to prove a political point while people are starving should be criminal.

    My local supermarket doesn't carry Goya products. I asked the manager if they were going to start and he said that he had so many request for Goya products that they have already placed an order and shelves should be stocked in about a week.

    Goya donates food to the needy, the left loses their minds and shows they are better by throwing away food that could be donated.

    GOYA is good food company, many people are stocking up instead!

    Well that will show Goya! Not. They already have the money from those already purchased cans. Could have at least donated them.
