National Hog Farmer is the source for hog production, management and market news
December 20, 2021
AMVC Management Services proudly joined the National Pork Producers Council's 2021 "Give-a-Ham" challenge, a national social media campaign encouraging hog farmers and those involved in the industry to donate pork to organizations serving their local communities.
Eleven AMVC employees accepted the challenge and donated pork products to seven community organizations across three states: Indiana, Iowa and Wyoming. Organizations receiving donations included:
Frankfort Fire Department
Clinton County EMS
Henry Township Volunteer Fire Department
Mount Ayr Fire Department
Creston Fire Department
Creston Area Food Pantry
Wheatland Child and Family Development, Inc.
"We're proud to be a part of an industry that is committed to giving back to its communities," says Sophie Hansen, public relations specialist. "First responders, food pantries and child and family centers are important pillars of every community, and we're happy to recognize their work with these donations."
Last year across the United States, pig farmers donated 15 million pounds of pork, or 220 million servings, to local organizations through the Give-A-Ham challenge. While members of the pork industry kick off the challenge, everyone is welcome to participate. Individuals are encouraged to join the challenge and share their stories on social media using the #GiveaHam hashtag.
