4H program donating meat to food banks

Food banks and charitable organizations are usually successful in collecting cans and boxes of food but donated meat has been harder to come by. A group of Utah State University Extension 4-H youths and leaders are working to change this. On Saturday, they will be at the Utah Food Bank warehouse in Salt Lake City sorting meat into small boxes. It will be shipped throughout the state of Utah to feed hungry families. Approximately 120,000 pounds of meat will be donated through the program.
