Beefitarian, a campaign celebrating beef and uniting beef lovers, successfully completed it’s first-ever Beefitarian City Showdown, crowning Phoenix Rescue Mission’s Hope for Hunger Food Bank as the champion and winner of $15,000 worth of beef, arriving at Hope for Hunger.
Hope for Hunger Food Bank is located at 5605 N. 55th Ave., Glendale.
JBS USA donated the beef to Hope for Hunger, which will use the much-needed food for nutritious meals for families and individuals around the Phoenix area.
As champion of the Beefitarian City Showdown, Hope for Hunger received $15,000 in beef, equating to 5,769 pounds of high-quality, lean ground beef and 5,769 meals for families or individuals visiting the food bank.
“At Hope for Hunger Food Bank, we realize that hope often begins with a meal,” Phoenix Rescue Mission sharing supervisor Rachel Stack stated in a news release. “Providing a robust variety of food to carry a family through the month is crucial to showing them how much we care for them as people. We are so thankful that Beefitarian invited us to participate in this contest and could not be more excited about what this high-quality beef will mean to the hundreds of families we serve every week in the Valley of the Sun.”
