History of Beef Counts

In 2010, Washington's Beef Community set out to help our neighbors who need it the most. When cattle ranchers and feeders learned of the severe lack of high quality protein reaching the food bank system, Beef Counts was created to provide a consistent supply of zinc, iron, and protein rich beef to those in need.

Since 2010, over 850,000 servings of high quality beef have reached hungry families with children, and seniors who can benefit from the healthy nutrition found in beef.
