The Ohio Pork Council and the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), this holiday season donated 10,000 pounds of hams to their Northeast Ohio neighbors, through the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, was on hand to greet recipients and show gratitude for the protein-packed donation to her constituents.
Just in time for the holidays, the generous donation will provide more than 50,000 meals in the greater Cleveland area. In the past year, the Ohio Pork Council and Rep. Fudge have partnered to donate pork products, during Easter and Thanksgiving, supplying more than 220,270 meals.
“Ohio farmers, though the work and support of the Ohio Pork Council and NPPC, are proud to continue to partner with Congresswoman Fudge to help provide valuable, much-needed, protein to those in need during the holidays,” said Howard Krikke, OPC Representative and Greenwich, OH farmer.
