Throughout each year, pig farmers give back to their community. Pork Checkoff public relations manager Claire Masker says that is especially evident during this time of the year.
For the second straight year, the Pork Checkoff has organized the #HamsAcrossAmerica campaign.
Earlier this week, the National Pork Board, the Iowa Pork Producers Association, Smithfield Foods and PrairieFresh Premium Pork served breakfast at the Central Iowa Shelter. In addition, a 70,000 pork donation was made to the Food Bank of Iowa. Pig farmers are also encouraged to Pay it Forward.
For more information, producers can contact the Pork Checkoff Service Center. Go to Pork-dot org or call 800-456-PORK.
