USCA Leads Effort to Feed Communities Hit by Tornadoes

The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association’s Independent Beef Processing Committee led an effort to help communities hit hard by tornado damage. More than 800 pounds of beef is on its way to feed communities in Western Kentucky. At least 74 people, including 12 children, perished, and more than 100 people are still missing after the devastating storms hit the area. “We cannot imagine what these residents must be going through as they grieve those they have lost in the storms and survey the damage to their homes and communities,” says USCA President Brooke Miller. “Our members stepped up in the best way we know how by offering a small reprieve in the form of homegrown American beef.” The Louisville-based nonprofit called The Lee Initiative will host a Christmas Eve dinner for community residents and first responders using the beef donated by USCA members. “We hope this Christmas Eve dinner provides a touch of the holiday spirit,” Miller adds.
