We Did Good!

That right there is over ONE THOUSAND POUNDS of packaged Star Brand Beef that we donated to The Food Bank Of The Rockies! I say ‘we’ because I was not alone in this – nearly 100 wonderful people joined me to help make this huge, beautiful donation possible.

I hit up a trucker scale on my way to the delivery (loaded) and afterward (empty) and, drumroll…. ’twas precisely 1140 pounds of organic, humanely-raised, GMO-free, antibiotic-free, pastured, grass-finished uber-healthy beef. YES! We all need nourishing, healthy food and we all deserve it.

The Food Bank Of The Rockies is serving nearly twice as many people this year as it did last year. The circle of sharing is so real, and so important.

On a superficial note: I love my little red reefer truck SO MUCH! I was downright giddy, ecstatic really, while driving it again. I felt like I was traversing the snowy December landscape in Rudolph’s nose. Perhaps her formal name is Rudy, hmmmm…. Here’s an interior pic:

Thank you, thank you, for your incredible support this year, and for Helping Fight Hunger with Star Brand Beef. This is just the beginning!

    You are a shining light in these dark days, reminding us that human needs do not change. Love and joy to you and yours, Shreve.

    You are seriously helping to restore my belief that humans are basically good. At least helping to tip the scale in the right direction in a major way.

    *You* did good. I have always loved when people understand that “left-overs”, food that is passed its expiry date and stuff no one else wants is fair game for donating to the Food Bank or to people in need. I worked once at a housing project for women who were transitioning from being homeless and it was astounding to me how many giant garbage bags full of used, soiled, and tatty clothing we would find at the front door around Christmas time as “donations”. This donation that you and your wonderful donors have made of uber-healthy beef is so respectful I could just cry. Thank you Shreve and others for honouring those who have fallen on hard times.

    There is so much to love about this. The explanations of the ways of love could come from many directions.
    I have one question.
    Does the horn sound like a beep, aoogaa, blarg? Polite, or in your face?
    Ok, 2. But really, just a clarification. :-)
