‘Tis the Season to Give-a-Ham

The Virginia Pork Council invites you to participate in the nationwide “Give-A-Ham” Pork Product Challenge. In conjunction with the National Pork Producers Council, the Virginia Pork Council is proud to engage Virginia pork producers, the greater agriculture industry, and our leadership in this holiday giving program which over the past five years has reached over 6,300,000 people on social media and collected over 36 million pounds of pork.

On Tuesday, November 29, Dr. Jeremy Pittman, board member of the Virginia Pork Council and National Pork Producers Council, kicked off the challenge here in Virginia. This campaign focuses on highlighting the commitment of hog farmers to their communities and our nation’s food supply by providing sustainable and nutritious pork products.

This is your opportunity to join the campaign to donate pork products to organizations serving the food insecure, and challenging others to follow suit. We even challenge our fellow commodity organizations to join in and support our “Give-A-Ham” Pork Product Challenge campaign to provide nutritious meals for those in need this holiday season. Please JOIN US in supporting communities across Virginia and the nation, and be sure to FOLLOW ALONG as we #GiveAHam.
