Councilwoman Sexton Smith Announces Next Free Pork Loin Giveaway

Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith (D-4) and JBS (formerly Swift Co.) have announced the next giveaway of 60 plus fresh pork loins will be Tuesday, February 19th at Grace Hope Presbyterian Church.

“We will be on hand at the Dare to Care Mobile Food Pantry when it makes a stop at the church to help those in need,” says Sexton Smith. “JBS is a committed partner in our efforts to bring fresh food to people in need.”

The 60 plus fresh pork loins will be distributed beginning at 1:30pm at the church located at 702 East Breckinridge Street.

Councilwoman Sexton Smith and JBS began this effort in January with the goal of bringing fresh food products to either those in need or those who have a difficult time getting to a store to buy fresh foods.

The JBS meatpacking plant in Butchertown has more than 1100 employees at the Louisville plant. Most are members of UFCW Local 227.

Dare to Care was founded almost 50 years ago in Louisville to ensure that no one in the community lacks enough food to live an active, healthy life.

The organization partners with nearly 300 local social service agencies, such as food pantries, shelters and emergency kitchens to distribute food to our community. In the past year, Dare to Care and its partners provided 19.9 million meals to the community.

“I am proud to work with two great partners and together we are making sure folks in District 4 have fresh food products and live a healthier life,” said the Councilwoman.
