Food Bank Cooperation Donation: Philosophy & Mission

 

Why do I care so much about food banks?

Supporting food banks was extremely important to my grandmother, the late, great Svensto. I am honored to continue her legacy.

We all need healthy, nourishing food and I believe we all deserve it. And it’s getting harder to procure, especially in certain areas like food deserts. Healthy, organic food is generally more expensive, and I have a really hard time with the fact that one’s socioeconomic status determines the quality of food available. The healthiest (and most sustainably produced) food should not be exclusive to the economically-advantaged.

I am disturbed by the widening chasm of income inequality. I consider this a heartbreaking crisis and I feel powerless in many ways. But I am in a position to donate the finest, healthiest, most delicious beef to food banks, and I do this with a rebel’s spirit.

Cooperation is a revolutionary act, I believe this with my soul. Join us HERE!

How this works:
Donations are collected and pooled to buy humanely-raised, organic, grass-finished beef from Star Brand Beef at wholesale (more beef for your buck). That beef is donated to The Food Bank of The Rockies in YOUR names. I will provide The Food Bank of The Rockies with a spreadsheet of donations received (which will include your names and addresses) and The Food Bank of The Rockies will then send YOU your own, personalized 501(c)3 charitable donation paperwork in the amount of your donation for the 2018 tax year.

With this donation, you:
• help individuals and families receive nourishing, healthy food
• know your donation dollars go exclusively to food raised with organic, sustainable practices
• support my work in ethical agriculture and the humane treatment of animals
• get a tax write-off for your kindness and generosity!

I donate beef every year, personally, but believe that together, we can donate even more to those in need, and keep even more animals from entering the feedlot system. Thank you so much for joining me in this venture!

Privacy policy: Your name and contact information will be shared with (and only with) The Food Bank of The Rockies so that they may send you your charitable donation paperwork for the 2018 tax year.

Questions? Ashley is my coordinator at The Food Bank of the Rockies if you have specific questions for them – you can also email me with questions and I can answer them or forward them on to her.

  • Star Brand Beef is a small ranch, run with love and care. I have a limited supply of beef and always sell out before the ordering window closes each summer.
  • Ordering for 2016 closes in June, or when I sell out - whichever is first. If you would like to order, please act quickly!
