Ohio pork farmers donated 1,400 hams to benefit the Cleveland community and support the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. Ohio Pork Council's protein-packed donation will provide over 5,600 meals to those in need in the Greater Cleveland area.
“Ohio’s pork farmers are extremely dedicated to their communities and the well-being of the people within them, which is why OPC strives to make a difference in the community each year through the Pork Power program,” said Ohio Pork Council President Dave Shoup. “In a state that is so agriculturally-dependent, it is important that farmers like me are willing to give the fruit of our labor to those in need.”
More than 1.6 million fresh, wholesome meals have been donated to local foodbanks in Ohio since the inception of OPC's Pork Power program.
“We’re grateful to the Ohio Pork Council to provide this much needed protein that will help meet the needs of many hungry people in the Greater Cleveland community,” said Karen Pozna, Director of Communications for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. “Thank you for your continued commitment to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and feeding hungry people in Northeast Ohio. I know our partner agencies will be so happy to receive this nutritious product!”
