Memorial Day - Office Closed

World Pork Expo



Food Banks

As businesses begin to reopen, many farmers are still faced with hard decisions on marketing their livestock. This is due to packing plants running at 50% of their capacity and local butcher shops being booked out months in advance.

Here in Iowa, many farmers are turning to a program called Pass the Pork. This program connects Iowa producers to local food banks. Many people who have lost jobs or need extra assistance are seeking help at these local food banks.

If you are an Iowa resident and would like to donate, please click the link here.


If your state doesn’t have a program in place, consider donating to a pantry close to you. Resources for finding a food bank/pantry in your area, check out Feeding America or Food Pantries.
