Don’t underestimate what you do each and every day as a pig farmer – feeding your family as well as everyone else's, says Heather Hill, president of the National Pork Board and an Indiana pig farmer.

 

“Food insecurity is something we used to think maybe only happened on the coasts, but I know there are kids my kids go to school with each day that don't know where their next meal is coming from,” Hill says.

 

That’s why she is so excited the National Pork Board is partnering with Luke Bryan and Feeding America to help fight food insecurity. As part of Luke Bryan’s Farm Tour, a rural concert series held on farms throughout the Midwest in September, the National Pork Board is partnering with Farmland, a brand of Smithfield Foods, to donate a truckload of pork to local foodbanks in each of the states hosting the six tour stops. The donations will help provide high-quality protein, one of the most valuable resources food banks distribute.
