Another chance coming up to help feed our troops
The All-American Beef Battalion — a volunteer organization that travels the U.S. serving steaks to our men and women in uniform, and their families — and the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee will team up again soon.
There is a steak-feed taking place at noon on Saturday, July 15, for the Space Mountain Brigade at Fort Carson, where the group will be serving about 750 people.
Anyone wanting to help out is encouraged to do so, and can contact Colorado Corn Administrative Committee President Mike Lefever at (303) 588-1700 or email@example.com for more details.
In recent years, Colorado Corn staff and board members have helped serve about 50,000 steak dinners here in the state, and the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee has all together now contributed $125,000 to the Beef Battalion.
Who is Colorado Corn?
Colorado Corn, based in Greeley, is made up of the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee and the Colorado Corn Growers Association.
The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) oversees how Colorado’s corn check-off dollars (one penny per bushel of grain corn produced in Colorado) are spent on research, market development, outreach and other various endeavors.
The Colorado Corn Growers Association (CCGA) is comprised of dues-paying members who are politically active, focusing on policy that impacts corn producers and agriculture in general.
