In 2009, the Ohio Pork Council developed a pork donation program to benefit Ohio foodbanks. Working with the Ohio Association of Foodbanks and the Ohio Association of Meat Processors, farmers all over Ohio volunteered to donate pigs (A LOT OF PIGS). Other groups, like Farm Credit Mid-America and the Ohio Corn Marketing Program, donated money to help provide Ohio-raised pork, processed by Ohio processors, to Ohio's foodbanks.
Over the course of the past five years, this effort has provided more than 1,000,000 meals of pork to Ohio families in need!
The organization felt meeting that milestone was cause for a celebration! Members plan to celebrate with all of their closest Facebook friends and Pinterest followers by giving away $500 of groceries. They trust the winner will use the money on pork products since that would be the only ethical thing to do.
