One of the ways Triangle supports area 4-H participants is by purchasing livestock. In turn, quarters of premium, processed and packaged 4-H beef are offered to nonprofit organizations to use for fund-raising or to supplement their community food programs. Recipients are chosen by random drawing from all qualified entries received by April 1st. Preference is given to first-time recipients and to organizations that are not specifically supported by other Triangle programs. Winners are notified in June and contacted when meat is ready to be picked up later in the summer. Beef is limited and subject to availability and budget. For more information, please contact Triangle's Public Relations Specialist, Angela by e-mail or call her at 800.332.1201 extension 862. Deadline is April 1st.
