The Pig Project came about when a long time volunteer, Larry Schwartz, asked if he could get enough donations to purchase some pigs from the stock show, would GSM be interested in receiving the meat?
We are always excited to provide quality sources of protein to our families so we easily agreed.
Mr. Schwartz passed away in 2019, right after the Youth Fair. Ruth and his children want to continue the project in his memory.
We are reorganizing and looking for people to be involved.
We will need to raise funds and work with the the Youth Fair to promote the project. The pigs will be fed out for about eight weeks and then taken to the processor. The ground pork will then be delivered to the freezers of Good Samaritan Ministries to be distributed through the Food Pantry.
