From the Illinois Pork Producers.  They are hoping to get to all Food Pantries in Illinois including small local food pantries that might be off the beaten path.  If you are involved with a food pantry, please consider sharing.  

 

Illinois Pork Producers Announces Funding Opportunity for Food Pantries

 

 

The Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA) is excited to announce a new funding opportunity for food pantries in 2021.The Food Pantry Co-op was created to provide pork to food pantries, shelters, churches or groups in Illinois who strive to fight food insecurity in their local communities.

 

“Giving back to our local communities continues to be a top priority for Illinois pig farmers,” shares Alan Kollmann, IPPA President. “Our hope for this funding is to get quality protein further into small communities in our state, through existing organizations.”

 

The Food Pantry Co-op will reimburse up to $250 for the purchase of pork products. Eligible purchases include shelf-stable pork products, frozen or fresh products. Organizations, such as those listed above, are encouraged to apply for this program.

 

Funding is available on a first come, first served basis. The application can be found at ilpork.com.

 

IPPA continues to provide ground pork to the regional food banks across the state through the Pork Power program. Income from annual t-shirt sales, monetary donations from individuals, Illinois Corn Growers and the Illinois Soybean Association, plus donated pigs from Illinois farmers make this program possible.

 

We encourage you to share this application with your local food pantry and encourage them to apply.   THE APPLICATION IS ATTACHED.  

You can find the press release here.
