Giving Tuesday

Your inbox and mailbox may have already been flooded with coupons for great deals and shopping on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday, but today we wanted to highlight #GivingTuesday, a one-day global event for charitable giving. After all this is the season of giving and we just celebrated giving thanks for all our many blessings.

The beef community came together in 2010 to create a rancher-led initiative to provide a more consistent supply of protein to those in need through The Idaho Foodbank. Partners include the Idaho Cattle Association, Idaho CattleWomen Council, Agri Beef Co., and the Idaho Beef Council. Through the program, ranchers can donate an animal to be auctioned off at participating auction yards around the state and the proceeds are used to purchase ground beef or roasts for the Foodbank. In addition, anyone can make a cash donation to the program, which will be used to purchase beef. Agri Beef Co., matches every donation, so every dollar donated goes farther. Since it started, Beef Counts has distributed more than 650,000 servings of beef—a complete, nutrient-dense source of protein, iron, zinc and B vitamins.

To learn more about the program, visit Beef Counts or The Idaho Foodbank.
