Pilgrim’s Marshville today announced it will hold a free Covid-19 vaccine clinic and give away free meat for a year to one lucky winner who gets vaccinated. In partnership with StarMed, the clinic will be held on July 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during Rud’s Ranch Vendor Event (2516 Old Peachland Rd., Marshville).

As part of Pilgrim’s goal to vaccinate Americans in the rural communities where the company operates, it is awarding one winner who receives their first vaccine at the clinic with free beef, pork and chicken to feed a family of four for a year. Clinic attendees can also enjoy the free vendor event in addition to receiving their vaccine. Nearly 55% of Pilgrim’s Marshville team members have been vaccinated to date. 

“We’re proud of these ongoing efforts to bring life-saving Covid-19 vaccines to the larger Marshville community,” said Micah Abernathy, Pilgrim’s Marshville complex manager. “There’s no better opportunity to do your part, roll up your sleeve and get vaccinated for a chance to win free meat for a year.”

Pilgrim’s has promoted vaccination among its workforce of more than 31,000 employees with great success. The company’s vaccination program includes onsite clinics, paid time off, a $100 incentive bonus and a multi-lingual education campaign. Pilgrim’s wants to help raise local community vaccination rates to help safeguard its hometowns across the country. 

The Pilgrim’s “Your Shot at Free Meat for a Year” sweepstakes campaign builds on the Hometown Strong initiative, a $20 million investment in local communities where Pilgrim’s operates. Learn more here.
