Pork Producers and others in agriculture around the state are busy this month continuing the Pork Power Program, a way to donate ground pork to local food banks.
Matt Frizzo with Borgic Farms says after a decade of giving, almost 200 tons of pork has been donated with the help of farmers around Illinois.
The way the food bank figures that up, its three-point eight million servings.
This fall more than 50,000 pounds of ground pork will be donated to food banks state wide. The Illinois Pork Producers, Illinois Soybean Association and the Illinois Corn Marketing board all participate in the program.
