As the first program of its kind in the United States, the Beef Counts program brings together all of Idaho’s beef industry, in partnership with The Idaho Foodbank. Spearheaded by the Idaho Beef Council (IBC), industry partners include the Idaho Cattle Association, Idaho Cattlewomen and Agri Beef Company.
The Beef Counts program sets an annual goal for raising funds that will be used to purchase and donate beef for The Idaho Foodbank. The IBC organizes multiple events throughout the year that serve as a platform for The Idaho Foodbank to raise funds for Beef Counts such as Race For The Steaks.
As part of this special program, fund-raising is given a strong boost by industry partner Agri Beef, which sources Northwest beef to produce its Double R Ranch brand. Agri Beef matches all Beef Counts donations up to $50,000 every year. This makes all contributions go further, resulting in a bigger impact.
Twenty dollars of every registration fee will directly support the Beef Counts Program. And that will be DOUBLED as Agri Beef will match all donations – so your participation will result in $40 being donated to the Beef Counts program. This means that every race registration fee will provide 98 three ounce servings of high-quality beef protein to Idahoans in need!
