Last week, the Kansas Pork Association, Prairie Fresh Pork and Kansas pig farmers teamed up to provide 20,000 pounds of protein to the Kansas Food Bank. This donation is part of the annual Hams Across America program, which highlights the industry’s We CareSM ethical principles to contribute to a better way of life in local communities through pork product donations.
“We know that many of our neighbors are food insecure, with one in eight people struggling with hunger,” said Art Sauder, a pig farmer from Great Bend, Kansas. “Being good neighbors and helping those in need is important to everyone in our industry. This donation, in partnership with Prairie Fresh Pork, allows us to live the We Care ethical principles and share our love of the product that we produce.”
“Offering a meal to our neighbors in need is a long-time tradition for pig farmers across America, and our Prairie Fresh producers at Seaboard Foods and Triumph Foods are honored to continue that tradition with this Hams Across American pork donation,” said David Eaheart, senior director of communications and Prairie Fresh brand marketing at Seaboard Foods. “We’re hopeful that the products donated today will bring comfort and help those facing food insecurity.”
The donation will be used by the Kansas Food Bank and dispersed to food pantries across the state.
