As part of its ongoing Helping Hungry Homes program, Smithfield has committed to continue its fight against hunger by making more than 30 large-scale protein donations across the United States in 2016. A spokesman said throughout the year, the company will donate more than three million servings of protein to food banks nationwide to help families and individuals suffering from hunger.
