Farmers Union Enterprises has teamed up with state Farmers Unions and food banks in five states to donate 180,000 pounds of pork. The pork is going to food banks in Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
Thirty-five thousand pounds of pork was delivered to Second Harvest Foodbank in Madison, Wisconsin Tuesday. Dairy farmer and Wisconsin Farmers Union President Darin Von Ruden says their farmer members are hard at work each day producing food that we want to be sure is reaching those who need it most.
