The Pennsylvania Pork Producers Council donated over 5,000 pounds of pork this holiday season. Through the #GiveAHam Challenge, producers were encouraged to support local food banks by purchasing #realpork and donating in their local communities. This holiday season Pennsylvania pork producers made donations in Adams, Franklin, Juniata, Mifflin, Montgomery, Northumberland, Lancaster, Luzerne and Schuykill Counties.
In addition to individual donations, the PPPC alongside Leidy's Premium Meats made a donation totaling $10,000, of over 4,000 pounds of pork, to the Philabundance Food Bank system in Philadelphia. Philabundace Food Bank services nine counties and over 350 different agencies.
"December is traditionally a season full of giving and this is one way that we as pork producers can show our support for families in need all over the state," said PPPC Board President Ben Barcovtch. "Real pork is a nutritious, high-quality protein that is easy to prepare. Our producer-led board looks forward to this program every year."
