Hometown Strong

In 2020, JBS USA, JBS Canada and Pilgrim’s U.S. launched Hometown Strong, a now $100 million initiative to bring strength and stability to the communities where we live and work.  Our facility management teams have been working with local leaders and organizations to determine how the funds can best help meet immediate and longer-term community needs.

To date, Hometown Strong has invested in over 230 projects, with more initiatives to come:
