Nebraska’s pork industry builds stronger communities

Pig farms and pork producers have long been a staple in Nebraska communities. As caring neighbors and responsible citizens, Nebraska Pork Producers Association is dedicated to giving back and helping make Nebraska even stronger. As one of the six pillars of the We Care Initiative, community is an integral part of America’s pork industry each and every day.

Every year the Nebraska Pork Producers Association sponsors events across Nebraska in communities large and small that emulate the pork industry’s ethical principles. A few examples are:

Mt. Sinai Church, Omaha

Give A Ham: As part of its holiday initiative, NPPA provides over 3,200 pounds of hams and pork loins to agencies and organizations that serve the food insecure across Nebraska. Just a sample of the communities impacted include Omaha, Lincoln, Kearney, Grand Island, Hastings, Fremont and Broken Bow.

Pinot, Pigs and Pours: A premier “pork-centric” culinary event in Omaha serves as an essential fundraiser for the Completely Kids organization that distributes 860 bags of food to children every weekend. The event has raised over $3 million since its inception in 2010.

A wide range of additional sponsorships supporting local projects focusing on such efforts as: literacy, cancer benefits, county fairs, historical renovations, community foundations, athletic programs/facilities, child care, fire departments and, most vigorously, food insecurity.
