Pilgrim’s Chattanooga 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 the Homeless Health Care Center, the clinic will be held on Aug. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the center in Downtown Chattanooga (730 E 11th St.).

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.

“This vaccination clinic is a great opportunity for members of our community to come out and do their part to help put an end to the Covid-19 pandemic,” said James Bradford, Pilgrim’s Chattanooga complex manager. “Vaccination is the best defense against the virus, and we hope everyone will come out, roll up a sleeve and enter for a chance to win free meat for a year.”

Pilgrim’s has promoted vaccination among its workforce of more than 31,000 U.S. 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 company’s Hometown Strong initiative, a $20 million investment in local communities where Pilgrim’s operates. Learn more here.
