The donations made through the national Hams Across America effort showcase the pork industry’s commitment to the We CareSM ethical principles, including a focus on community.

“Giving back to our communities is an important part of who we are,” said David Newman, president of the National Pork Board and a pig farmer representing Arkansas. “Our Hams Across America programme gives me and other pig farmers another way to live out the We Care ethical principles, but my favourite part is getting to share our love of the food we produce with neighbours in need.”

The Hams Across America programme helps overcome food insecurity, especially in rural areas where pig farmers farm and live.
