Smithfield Is Giving Back This Holiday Season!

Every holiday season I get caught up in all of the joy and excitement of purchasing that "perfect gift", and planning elaborate meals, menus, and appetizers for the different occasions presented with family and friends in town.  It brings me such joy to be able to do these things, to make special treats for those around me, and, especially if they friends I don't see often, I'll spare no expense.  However, I must be reminded that not everyone can engage in these types of lavish plans.  Many, far more than those who can, worry more about where their own next meal will come from, and how to provide for those dependent on them.
During these two months, December and January, Smithfield, the leading producer of fresh pork products and packaged meats, is making a commitment to help relieve some of the stress and worry from those less fortunate.  They have pledged that for every fan they gain on their Facebook page they will donate a serving of protein to to a food bank.  This is all part of their "Helping Hungry Homes" initiative.
