For every box of steaks purchased we provide a nutritious meal to hungry children, families, and individuals across our local Colorado Community.
We’ve partnered with Community Food Share whose mission is to fight hunger by providing access to fresh, nutritious food through their local partners and onsite mobile pantries. They are a member of Feeding America, the national network of 200 food banks, and a member of Feeding Colorado.
Community Food Share rescues food from local grocery stores, food processors and distributors. Their Garden Share program collects local, freshly grown food that farmers and home gardeners donate to them directly, and they also send volunteers out to farms to harvest produce.
Hunger affects nearly every community across America, and impacts millions of children every day. In our local area hunger is a reality for 1 in 9 people. That’s 41,000 people (11% of the population) including 9,700 children.
By donating a healthy meal with every purchase we’re able to support our community and make a positive impact. We hope this will also inspire conversation around hunger, food waste and how we can all work together to help foster a strong community.
Meat Grades: Prime vs Choice
The USDA determines this primarily based on marbling, but there are two factors they use to do this: quality grades for tenderness, juiciness, and flavor; and yield grades for the amount of usable lean meat on the carcass.
Prime beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat), and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels. Prime roasts and steaks are excellent for dry-heat cooking such as broiling, roasting, or grilling.
Choice beef is high quality but has less marbling than Prime. Choice roasts and steaks from the loin and rib will be very tender, juicy, and flavorful and are suited for dry-heat cooking. Many of the less tender cuts can also be cooked with dry heat if not overcooked. Such cuts will be most tender if braised, roasted or simmered with a small amount of liquid in a tightly covered pan.
