As part of the 10th anniversary of Pork Power: Partnering to Fight Hunger in Illinois campaign, the Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA) and Farmweld presented Catholic Charities and Enduring Freedom Ministries with 1,000 pounds of ground pork. 

Since its inception in 2008, Pork Power has generated over 625,000 pounds of pork - enough for nearly 2.4 million meals - for families throughout Illinois. Farmers and partnering commodity groups give pork and monetary donations all year round. 

“Farmweld is happy to help those in need in our local community while giving back to the pork industry we serve,” says Aaron Niebrugge, of Farmweld. 

Members of the Illinois Pork Producers Association, Farmweld, Catholic Charities and Enduring Freedom Ministries met for separate donations.
