Rosauers and Super 1 Foods

These local stores partner with Beef Counts to give back to the communities they serve. We love that, because it's the same reason Washington's beef farmers and ranchers launched Beef Counts in 2010. The donated beef gets to people in need through a partnership with Second Harvest.

What is Beef Counts?

The Beef Counts program provides high-quality, nutritious beef to local food banks to help hungry, local families.


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 1 million servings of high quality beef have reached hungry families with children, and seniors who can benefit from the healthy nutrition found in beef.

local partnership

Washington's Beef Community is proud to partner with Food Lifeline in western Washington and Second Harvest in eastern Washington. Both organizations work with a network of food bank locations in dozens of Washington communities. The Beef Counts provided beef gets to those in need through their tireless commitment to fighting hunger. 

In addition to a donation of at least $50,000 each year, Agri Beef Co. processes and ships the donated beef in-kind from their Washington Beef plant in Toppenish. This means that 100% of every contribution from farmers and ranchers or the public is used to supply more beef to those in need - not overhead or promotion.
