Rural Mutual Insurance and Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation announced that the Wisconsin Beef Council had joined them as a partner in raising awareness for the Wisconsin Food and Farm Support Fund.

Through this awareness, American Foods Group generously donated 5,000 pounds of ground beef to Feeding Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Food and Farm Support Fund stepped up and matched the donation with an additional 5,000 pounds of beef, bringing the total donation to 10,000 pounds. The ground beef was distributed to food banks across the state.  This donation will help neighbors in need during these challenging times, and to support Wisconsin’s cattle farmers who are working hard every day to ensure that their high quality, nutritious beef is readily available.

To learn more about how to donate to support further purchases of beef and other Wisconsin food products through the Farm and Food Support program, go to Rural Mutual's website or the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation's website
