Idaho beef ranchers distribute food
Nearly 600 beef items were distributed, all of which were donated to The Idaho Foodbank as part of the Idaho Beef Council’s Beef Counts program, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
To date, more than 1.5 million servings of beef have been distributed as a result of the program.
Bill Lickley, vice chairman of the Idaho Beef Council, along with Dawn Anderson, president of the Idaho Cattlemen's Association, was among the ranch family representatives giving back to the community.
"The Beef Counts program is important as it provides nutrient-rich and high protein food for families who may not otherwise have it," said Lickley.
"Beef ranching, and farming in general, is all about neighbors helping neighbors, and all of us out here today is one way we can give back to the communities who support us," said Anderson.
