    The Ohio Pork Council sponsored a bacon vending machine at The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences that offers cooked bacon strips and bacon bits for $1.

    The pork products were donated by Smithfield, Hormel and Sugardale. Proceeds from the machine support the school’s meat sciences program. 

    Members of the program will stock and maintain the machine while it is on campus through Dec. 13.
