Pork Power Donation Program


The annual Pork Power campaign will run January through October or until funds are exhausted. There are two ways that producers can participate:

1.    Donate pigs/sows directly to a participating processor 

2.    Donate the cash value of any pigs/sows sold at market locations

•    Eligible hogs are healthy lightweight (160 lbs. minimum) market weight hogs and sows. No boars will be accepted.

•    Do you already donate hogs to a local food pantry in your community? IPPA has funds to help offset the cost of processing!

      All you need to do is complete the 2018 Pork Power Donation Form.


Thanks to the donation of many pig farmers and support of various partners, Pork Power has provided more than 

625,000 pounds of pork amounting to more than 2.4 MILLION servings of pork donated to hungry Illinois residents since the program began in 2008. 



A special thank you to our Pork Power Partners:
