Event Description

The 2015 Hog Jog will be partnering with the Ontario Association of Food Banks this year, and hopes to make a dramatic impact in the amount of fresh, healthy protein - through the Ontario Pork Program - that is available to adults and children throughout the year. 

Mary Ann Hendrikx is our honourary chair for the 10th Annual HogJog.   Mary Ann grew up on hog farm, and has farmed with her husband and children since 1978. She acted as secretary/treasurer of her county pork association from 1990‐1999, and served as Board director on Ontario Pork from 1999 to 2011. She represented Ontario Pork on the Ontario Agricultural Commodity Council for most of those years, serving as Chair from 2010‐2011. 

It's hard to believe that there are over 375,000 people, including 131,000 children, relying on food banks every single month in Ontario - but it's true. 

These individuals are often not who you think. Would you guess that two of the fastest growing groups of food bank users are senior citizens over the age of 65, and current post-secondary students and recent graduates? Did you know that there is a food bank or emergency food support program on almost every university and college campus in the province?
