The Wisconsin State Fair welcomed more than a million visitors this year – and it looks like plenty of them enjoyed “The Other White Meat” courtesy of the Wisconsin Pork Association(WPA).
According to the WPA, this year the Pork Schoppe served over 16,000 butterfly pork chop sandwiches, over 5,100 pork chops on a stick, 3,845 pork burgers, and nearly 5000 pieces of our new menu item, bacon wrapped pork on a stick. Funds raised through the Pork Schoppe are used for WPA’s public policy and advocacy programs.
What’s next? Well the WPA is heading north to give attendees at the Packers/Bears game – the first regular season match up – a chance to sample! But it’s going to take some volunteers to handle that crowd! WPA will be providing grilled pork loin samples prior to the Green Bay Packers game that afternoon. Volunteers are needed from approximately 3 to 7 p.m. on September 9th to hand out the pork samples and visit with fans prior to the start of the Packers vs. Bears game.
