Ohio State University is temporarily hosting a bacon vending machine as a fundraiser through Dec. 13.

The machine was announced on Tuesday by the Ohio Pork Council and on Wednesday by Ohio State University's Meat Science Club. It sells cooked bacon strips and bacon bits for $1.

The products are donated by Smithfield, Hormel and Sugardale; proceeds will benefit the university's meat science program.
