- Hunger in Ontario
Founded in 1998 by the late Paul Mistele, a pork producer from Elgin County, the Donate-a-Hog program is an initiative of the Ontario Association of Food Banks and Ontario Pork. This program raises funds to help Ontario's Banks purchase pork, a much-needed protein item, for distribution to Ontarians living with chronic hunger.
The program thus far has raised over $90,000 to help feed Ontarians in need. The Donate-A-Hog Program runs between March and September each year.
Anyone wishing to donate may obtain a form online at www.ontariopork.on.ca or contact Ontario Pork at 1-877-668-7675 x1613 for more information.
