Where indeed! Thanks to the generosity of Joe and Julie Morris of Morris Grassfed Beef, quite a bit of it is at Community FoodBank. The Morrises agreed to sell almost a ton of organically grown grassfed beef to Community FoodBank at below their cost.
And thanks to a grant facilitating purchase of California grown healthy foods, the deal was done! Thanks, moreover, to our continuing renovation project, there’s ample freezer space to store it until it’s time to go out the door and into the kitchens of San Benito County families.
Just in case you’re curious, this is what a ton of steaks and roasts looks like.
