I love articles that talk about acts of kindness, especially when it involves one of the industries I work with. Swine Web shared an uplifting announcement recently that I had to pass along.

The Illinois Pork Producers Association, otherwise known as IPPA, launched Pork Power: Partnering to Fight Hunger in Illinois campaign in 2008. The goal was to help fight hunger in the state. They provide farmers with a system that allows them to donate pork to Illinois food banks. In 10 years, Pork Power campaign has provided food banks with more than 625,000 pounds of meat. This is enough for almost 2.4 million meals.

On May 22, 2018, the IPPA gave 5,000 pounds of ground pork to the Central Illinois Foodbank. This will be enough for more than 22,000 meals to those who are most in need in central and southern Illinois. Good job, IPPA! Your efforts are truly commendable. Read the full article here.
