‘Tis the Season When America Hams Together

Food is essential. It’s fun. It’s therapeutic. Sometimes, it’s a luxury. Food can say “Thank you,” “I’m sorry,” “Good luck,” “Hang in there,” or “Congrats!” During the holiday giving season — between Giving Tuesday and Christmas — we call on all of our friends to come together and pay it forward with pork through Hams Across America.

The Hams Across America program was created in 2016 to honor the way pig farmers serve their communities year-round through food bank donations, raised funds for those in need, meals cooked for friends and strangers alike, or as the name suggests, giving a holiday ham to neighbors.

It has grown exponentially since then and in 2018, this program encouraged more than half a million pounds of donated pork across America — that’s 2.2 million servings!

Our Pork Friends Are Going Ham

We’ve partnered with food and community advocates across the country to help us share the love and we’re inviting you, too! Show us your take on paying it forward with pork using #HamsAcrossAmerica.
