Pass the Pork: Pig Farmers Feeding Iowans



Through “Pass the Pork,” Iowa pig farmers are donating pigs to Iowa food bank feeding programs. Local meat processors have extended their hours of operation to process and package the pork donations to help meet the growing demand for food bank and food pantry resources. Iowa food banks are getting the pork into the hands of those in need.

The pigs for “Pass the Pork” are being donated by Iowa pig farmers. However, there are costs associated with the processing, storage, and delivery of the pork to food banks and pantries. Iowans can contribute to the Iowa Food Bank Association to help cover these costs and future purchases of Iowa-produced meat for food bank programs.

      It is breaking my heart that farmers have no way to process their hogs while people are going hungry. I hope my donation helps pay for processing and distribution.

      Thank you! We are fortunate to be able to give instead of to be in need. This program allows is to help farmers make use of their animals, lockers to have extra work and be compensated and our food bank network to support our communities. Great thinking!
