Mangia! Local Pig partners with Harvesters for Christmas

Campaign will supply the community organization with meatballs for holiday meals 

Acclaimed chef Alex Pope and his fabulous East Bottoms butcher shop, The Local Pig, are teaming up with Kansas City’s community food network, Harvesters, to help make the holidays merrier for thousands of food-insecure local residents. For every package of Italian-style meatballs ordered during the campaign, Local Pig will donate the same number of meatballs to Harvesters, which supplies food to more than 620 nonprofits in the area. Local Pig aims to make 14,000 meatballs in total, with half of that number going to Harvesters. Each box will contain two-dozen meatballs and costs just $24. Customers can order in person or online, and pick up the meatballs at Local Pig between Friday, Dec. 20 and Monday, Dec. 23. So that’s Christmas Eve dinner sorted!
