Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association

When the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association initiated its Beef Drive for Saskatchewan food banks last year, it had modest goals. “Our members just wanted to pitch in and help people,” SSGA President Shane Jahnke said.

The SSGA thought 1,000 pounds of packaged ground beef would be a realistic target. By the end of the inaugural campaign, Saskatchewan ranchers had donated 8,500 pounds of beef worth $48,000.

This year their goal is to contribute 10,000 pounds of fresh ground beef, and they’re well on their way. On World Food Day October 16, the SSGA donated 3,000 pounds to the food banks and have already donated a total of 4,000 pounds this fall.
