Pork Power Donation Program
Partnering to Fight Hunger in Illinois
Thanks to donations from pig farmers and support of various partners, Pork Power has provided more than 922,000 pounds of pork, amounting to more than 3 MILLION servings, to hungry Illinois residents since the program began in 2008. Food banks across Illinois work with our association to accept donations and distribute to families throughout the state.
If you are a farmer that wants to participate by donating a hog, please click here for further details.
Our 2022 annual Pork Power t-shirt is available for purchase for $20 (includes shipping).
Each shirt is $20, which is converted to 5 pounds of ground pork, equally 20 servings of quality protein.
Fulton County Farm Bureau, in partnership with the Illinois Pork Producers Association, gifted 800 pounds of pork to 7 local food pantries in the area. The dedication of farmers to their local communities does not go unnoticed. IPPA's "Pork Power" program assists with processing costs to further expand the reach of pork.
