Ohio pig farmers from Cooper Farms donated more than 11,000 pounds of pork on April 16 to the food bank in Dayton, Ohio.

The meat will provide more than 50,000 meals for hungry families in the Miami Valley of Ohio.


Pig farmers say they use opportunities like this to give back to the community. Pig farmers across the state have donated more than 1 million pork meals to food banks since 2009. 

"We like to support the local schools and everything, so when we can do 55,000 meals in one swoop like this, we really feel good as a family," said Gary Cooper, chief operating officer at Cooper Farms
