Buy a Ham, Feed a Fam

Local Manufacturing Business Implements New Program to Fight Hunger in Tristate

OWENSBORO, March 17, 2018 – Kentucky Legend®, a division of Specialty Foods Group, LLC, have spearheaded their continuous efforts to contribute to the tristate area with providing hunger relief through their “Buy a Ham, Feed a Fam” program.

The program has been designed to provide each of their accounts 5% of their incremental sales in Kentucky Legend hams to donate to their favorite cause or non-profit organization throughout the Easter holiday season.

“Our core values rest on our commitment to give back to our communities,” says Ric Herrera, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kentucky Legend. “In our line of business, we often tend to see the persistent fight on hunger and strive to promote awareness and continuous support in a means to overcome this battle.”

The business will host a small gathering and be joined by representatives from Sureway/Market Place to donate  approximately 700 lbs. of ham along with $1,000 in other goods to Breaking Bread Ministries. The event will take place from 11:00am-1:00pm today at 275 West Center Street in Madisonville.

Mike Paulsen, District Manager of Food Giant Kentucky Division states, “We, at Sureway/Market Place, have always strived to be active in our community and feel honored to be able to support such a worthy cause.  Market Place has been supporting Breaking Bread since 2012 and will continue to be involved in this great service to our area.”
