The Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau came through to help their community in need.

The Illinois based Farm Bureau donated 125 pounds of breakfast pork sausage to the Rock River Valley Pantry on Monday afternoon.

“Pork production and processing supports over 350 jobs in Winnebago and Boone County. Our local hog farmers are committed to giving back to their community while raising a high-quality, nutritious pork product,” Mike Meier, local hog farmer told WIFR.

Julie Newhouse, Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau president also spoke to WIFR, saying, “In the midst of challenging times for both swine producers and families needing great protein sources, we are thankful to be a support to both farmers and families through this donation of breakfast pork sausage to our local food banks.”
