Pilgrim’s Live Oak 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 Suwanee County Health Department, the clinic will be held on Aug. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the First Church of God (721 West Ave. NE).

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. Attendees may also participate in a job fair in addition to the clinic. Over half of Pilgrim’s Live Oak team members have been vaccinated to date.

“This vaccination clinic is a great opportunity to show your loved ones and neighbors you care,” said Jeff Garner, Pilgrim’s Live Oak complex manager. “We invite our community members to come out and do their part in the fight against Covid-19 with the added bonus of 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.
