During the month of June, Christensen Farms donated a total of $15,000 to food banks across the Midwest. The organization collaborated with local food banks in 15 communities in which it operates to provide pork certificates to those in need this summer.
“At Christensen Farms, we are proud to serve the noble purpose of providing safe, nutritious pork to families across the country,” said Amber Portner, Christensen Farms Communications Manager. “It is our hope that this donation will help provide families, including children, in the communities we operate, a key source of quality protein throughout the summer months.”
