Savanna Food Pantry was one of 25 pantries randomly selected

STERLING – State Rep. Tony McCombie is praising efforts by the Illinois Pork Producers Association for donating over 1,500 boxes of bacon to Illinois food pantries through a “Pass the Bacon” campaign this past week in honor of October Pork Month. Savanna Food Pantry was one in the area that was a recipient of the donation.

“Food insecurity has been a major concern during the pandemic.Inflation and supply chain issues have created additional insecurity for Illinois families and that is why this donation is so meaningful,” McCombie said in a statement.

The IPPA is an affiliate of the National Pork Producers Council and the National Pork Board.
