Thanks to Mississippi Market’s generosity, Second Harvest was able to distribute this beef to our partner agencies. According to Thousand Hills, grass fed beef provides a memorable eating experience that has been earning growing acclaim among chefs and food writers across the country. It offers a savory, “beefier” taste, and is tender and juicy when prepared properly. Thousand Hills’ cattle are grown on family farms in the near Upper Midwest (MN, IA, WI, NE, SD)— none further away than an 8 hour drive. Raised using humane, sustainable farming practices, their cattle are free ranged on lush pastures during warmer months, and fed hay or pasture silage in winter. They are not shut in crowded, confined concrete feedlots.
Thanks to Mississippi Market and their customers for continuing to support the Food Rescue program, thereby providing more food for our neighbors in need!
