BOISE -- Where’s the beef? Well, it's coming.
Idaho's beef industry is stepping up to help feed the hungry by providing a steady supply of meat to the Idaho Foodbank.
This program is the first of its kind in the nation and officials say it will allow them to meet the USDA's nutritional recommendations for meat for the first time.
The beef industry is bringing both money and meat to the table.
"In addition to that we provide the Idaho Foodbank with usable product -- chucks, rounds, roasts, those kinds of things in usable size for households," said Rick Stott, Agri Beef executive vice president.
Several organizations are making this happen including the Agri Beef Company, the Idaho Beef Council, the Idaho Cattle Association, and the Idaho CattleWomen Council.
