The Franklin County Cattlemen, along with the Washington Beef Commission and 2nd Harvest Foods provided a Mobile Food Market in Mesa on Friday, April 1.
For over 12 years the Washington Beef Commission’s “Beef Counts” has partnered with the beef community to raise more than $1 million in donations to provide local food give-a-ways including beef products through hunger relief agencies across the state. Through this project they have provided 2.5 million servings of beef.
The Franklin County Cattlemen sponsored Friday’s event in Mesa so that they could bring it locally. Cars lined up from Mesa Grocery to the end of the street in anticipation of the giMobile Market. Ground beef, provided through the Washington Beef Commission and Cattlemen’s Association along with rice, masa flour, apples, pears, potatoes, milk, and vegetables were given out to over 250 families. Franklin County Cattlemen not only donated to the event but were on hand to volunteer, keeping busy handing foot out to their community.
