— Hi Everyone! —
We wanted to give a HUGE thank you to all of you for coming to be a part of Camp Bacon this year. Each year the event gets a little bit better, and thanks to you, this year's gathering was the best yet! Thank you for sharing your insights, your passions, your dreams, your bacon and your beliefs about pork in particular and life in general, and in the process raising money for Southern Foodways Alliance and the 4H Clubs. We haven't finished totaling up the monies yet, but it looks like we've surpassed both last year's donation total and this year's target as well.
On behalf of the Southern Foodways Alliance, 4H and everyone at Zingerman's, many, many thanks. Your energy is amazing!
We'll be sending more info down the road but in the interim please let us know if there's anything we can do to be of help!
We hope that the connections and learning that you took with you when you went home from Camp will be of great value to you for many years to come.
All the best in bacon!

What is Camp Bacon?
It's a fundraiser in Ann Arbor, MI for Southern Foodways Alliance that brings together Bacon-Lovers, -Makers, Cooks, Curers and anyone who likes to learn, eat and enjoy cured and smoked pork belly. Curious? I hope so. Camp Bacon is four days of all things bacon — eating, learning, listening, tasting and talking; a pork centric party that features everything from poetry to pigs.
SAVE THE DATE! Next year's Camp Bacon (2014)is set for the weekend of May 29 through June 1. Main Event, Street Fair and other events (the Bacon Ball at the Roadhouse, classes at BAKE, etc.) will also be on the docket!
