As a finale to May Beef Month celebrations, 185 individuals across the state laced up for the first virtual Burgers & Buns Fun Run to donate $4,000 to the Wisconsin Food and Farm Support Fund.
The Wisconsin Beef Council partnered with Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation for the event to salute beef farmers and ranchers who provide families with wholesome, sustainable protein choices while helping the economy thrive. Between May 24-31, participants wearing beef swag logged their miles anywhere and any way they chose to participate.
The Wisconsin Food and Farm Support Fund provides support to our state’s farmers and encourages consumption of milk, beef, and other agriculture products to ensure farmers continue to have a place to sell their products, and provide Wisconsinites access to nutritious, high-quality foods. As part of this fundraising effort, Wisconsin Farm Bureau will be collecting monetary donations for Harvest of Hope while Rural Mutual Insurance Company will be raising funds for Feeding Wisconsin. Collectively the fund will reach all corners of our state from the most urban areas to the rural farming communities.
