LIHU‘E — Animals from two Kaua‘i ranches were part of a 20,000-pound donation of beef for pandemic food relief, an effort put together by the members of the Hawai‘i Cattlemen’s Council.
The beef went to support those in need through outreach programs with The Salvation Army across Hawai‘i. Donations help provide protein for prepared meals for those in need during the pandemic. More than 5,000 meals have been made with the donations.
Among the list of more than 30 council members were donations from Hawai‘i Meats and Kaua‘i Ranch.
“Mahalo to our generous members who didn’t hesitate to contribute to this effort,” said Jeri Moniz, marketing chair of the Hawai‘i Cattlemen’s Council. “Every rancher we asked agreed to donate an animal.”
