Hundreds of hams given away in Moline

Hundreds of hams were given away for free to people suffering food insecurity ahead of the Easter weekend.

MOLINE, Ill. — Hy-Vee and first responders teamed up to give away hundreds of Hormel Cure 81 hams on Thursday, March 25.

The giveaway was part of the annual One Step Hams for the Holidays campaign.  The hams helped supplement people who are food insecure, ahead of an Easter weekend.

A total of 400 hams were given away at SouthPark Mall.  

All hams were handed off in a contactless drive-thru method and volunteers wore masks and gloves for added safety. 

This giveaway is just part of a large-scale campaign across eight states, which will give away almost 5,000 hams in all.
