Donate Your Cull Cows
Help Our Food Bank BEEF-UP with the Beef Donation Program. Olds college has been working with the Food Bank to help bring protein to food bank patrons through the company’s live cattle donation partnership.
Live beef cattle can be donated to the Food Bank, and will be processed by the students and staff of the College’s National Meat Training Centre. Processing the meat comes with supplementary costs of approximately $150 per animal, which covers the cost of wrapping and Government-mandated labeling. As such, the Food Bank is also seeking cash donations to help cover these costs. Tax receipts based on the current market value of the animal will be provided.
We are in need of at least two animals donated per month. That will help us fill enough baskets to feed over 250 families.
