Superior Beef Boosters grilling burgers
The Superior Beef Boosters is an organization dedicated to supplying locally raised beef to the Superior school system cafeteria. The group was established in 2017. Members of its board of directors are Jason Jensen, Jason Ray, Matt Bargen, Danny Corman, James Keifer, Scott Meyer, Mike Kirchhoff, Stacey Shroyer, Melissa Meyer and Hannah Shroyer.
Under the direction of the board, local beef producers are contacted and asked to donate beef.
The Beef Boosters strive to have local beef served as part of school lunch at least two times per week during the school year. The group also provides nutritional educational opportunities and information needed to establish the basis for lifelong healthy eating habits.
The program also introduces students to the importance of agriculture in our local and the global community.
Money saved by utilizing local beef is allocated for updating school equipment.
The first beef was delivered to the school in August, 2018. Since that original shipment, 11 more whole beef have been donated. The beef are processed by the Diller Locker company, Diller, Neb. This plant is federally inspected and meets the requirements of the school lunch programs. The meat is delivered to the school as ground beef and roasts. The roasts are served as sliced roast beef, beef and noodles or in other dishes. Steaks and other parts are sold to raise money for the program.
All the beef donated has been raised within 15 miles of Superior.
The Beef Boosters were at the Superior school cafeteria Monday even though it was raining. Danny Corman and Jason Jensen grilled burgers underneath a canopy located in the school courtyard. Students were treated to a trivia contest after their meal. Organization members distributed a survey to be completed by the students as to their opinion of the program and menu preferences.
Beef boosters plan to grill hamburgers for lunch again on October 31 and November 5.
