If you know a family in need, let them know about a free ham giveaway happening in Davenport.

Hy-Vee,  Hormel Foods, and first responders have begun the 3rd Annual Hams for the Holidays campaign.

From Monday, December 16 to Friday, December 20, Hy-Vee employees and first responders will hand out 2,650 Hormel Cure 81® hams to families in need in Davenport and Galesburg which are among the 10 Midwestern cities participating in the 2019 Hams for the Holidays program according to a recent news release.

Hams may be picked up on Thursday, December 19, beginning 5 p.m. at Galesburg’s Public Safety Building, located at 150 S. Broad Street. Parking is available in the side lot facing S. Cedar Street.

The Galesburg event will last for one hour or until all hams are distributed.

Hy-Vee’s Hams for the Holidays donations come from the Hormel® Cure 81® Hams for Hunger® program that was founded in 1989 and involves a partnership between Hormel Foods and grocery retailers across the country.

Throughout the years, more than $14 million in hams have been donated, feeding tens of thousands of families.
