Operation Christmas Meal

We believe everyone deserves a good meal, especially at Christmastime, which is why the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation hands out 17,000 free pork loins during 13 different Operation Christmas Meal events across Iowa.

Hundreds of Iowa Select Farms employees readily volunteer at their community’s giveaway, handing pork loins through car windows of families that need an extra hand during the holidays.

The spirit of giving is further ignited by encouraging those without need to pick up a pork loin and provide it to someone they know who is in need, such as a struggling single mother or an elderly, home-bound neighbor.
