Red Gold Tomatoes

You can help the families of the fallen the next time you visit your commissary or grocery store in-person or virtually.

Folds of Honor, a national nonprofit that provides scholarships to the families of fallen or wounded service members, and Red Gold Tomatoes have teamed up to start the Ketchup with a Cause program.

As part of the partnership, the most popular Red Gold ketchup bottles have been rebranded to feature the Folds of Honor logo. A portion of each ketchup sale will directly support the nonprofit’s mission.

“Red Gold was founded in 1942 in an effort to feed U.S. troops during World War II,” said Colt Reichart, director of marketing and fourth-generation owner at Red Gold. “The Folds of Honor mission is a natural fit for us.”

Ben Leslie, executive vice president at Folds of Honor, said the nonprofit is proud to partner with Red Gold in Ketchup with a Cause. 

“As families prepare for their summer barbecues this year, we encourage they participate in the Ketchup with a Cause program as a way to support and honor our nation's heroes,” he said.

Kelli Campbell and her family have been directly impacted by Folds of Honor. In 2016, her husband was killed in a helicopter collision in Hawaii. Following his death, she connected with the nonprofit and was awarded scholarships for all of her previously homeschooled children to attend a new school. 

“I was able to put them in a small, private school,” she said. “Folds of Honor  really filled the gap.”
