Usually, National Hot Dog Day for the North American Meat Institute is one of the bigger events in Washington during the summer. Franks hit the grill as politicians and industry leaders enjoy a few hot dogs together.
However, with COVID-19 still a major issue across the country, NAMI decided to turn this annual celebration into a chance to give back to communities across the country.
In this episode of the podcast, returning guest, Eric Mittenthal vice president of sustainability at the North American Meat Institute, discusses the recent food drive with Feeding America to donate hundreds of thousands of hot dogs around the country.
In another segment, Mittenthal mentioned a revitalized campaign this year called Wiener Wednesday as a chance for consumers to enjoy their hot dogs weekly.
During the podcast, Mittenthal also covers what NAMI has done during the pandemic to help members along with future projects the group has for the industry.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/meatpoultry-podcast/message
