Pig Farmers Pay It Forward with Two Million Servings of Pork

DES MOINES, IOWA – Jan. 28, 2020 – The National Pork Board announced today more than 2 million servings of pork have been donated in the last two months by pig farmers working together to help fight food insecurity in their local communities. These donations – made through a national Hams Across America effort – showcase the pork industry’s commitment to the We CareSM ethical principles, which include a focus on community.

“Giving back to our communities is an important part of who we are,” said David Newman, president of the National Pork Board and a pig farmer representing Arkansas. “Our Hams Across America program gives me and other pig farmers another way to live out the We Care ethical principles, but my favorite part is getting to share our love of the food we produce with our neighbors in need.”
