The article discusses the donation of 6,000 fresh, boneless pork loins to families in need in 26 Iowa counties by the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation and Iowa Select Farms. The 27,000 pounds of pork valued at 61,020 U.S. dollars will be coursed through 40 food banks and pantries from May 20-28, 2013 which are said to typically run low on donations and food supplies during the period. It recalls that the same donors gave away thousands of pounds of pork through various programs throughout 2012.
