Northwest Harvest to distribute nearly 20K pounds of beef

YAKIMA, Wash. - A local food bank is receiving nearly 20,000 pounds of beef.

Washington Beef LLC in Toppenish donated 10,000 pounds of ground beef and 9,000 pounds of beef patties to Northwest Harvest in Yakima, according to a Feb. 5 announcement from the food bank.

The beef distributor and its partners has helped provide over two million servings of beef over the past six years to those going hungry in Washington and Idaho.

“Washington Beef and its parent company Agri Beef believe in that age-old cattle country tradition of neighbors helping neighbors,” stated Brad McDowell, President of Washington Beef LLC.

Northwest Harvest spokespeople said Washington Beef knows local food banks are often in short supply of high-quality protein and have donated to help fill this need.

Northwest Harvest is working to get the beef donation out to families by distributing to food banks and meal programs throughout Central and Eastern Washington.
