We’re excited that the opening of The Meathouse in Andover, SD brings a USDA inspected facility right to our District providing a great opportunity to serve our kids high quality, locally grown and harvested beef.
To help make this possible, the Groton Area School District is looking for donations of beef cattle for the 2023-2024 school year. We anticipate the need to be six head annually processed at different times throughout the school year.
The initial goal is to serve 100% locally grown and processed beef in our school lunch program.
If you are interested in donating to the Groton Area School District Local Beef program, please contact Joe Schwan at 605-397-2351 or Joe.Schwan@k12.sd.us.
Monetary donations to this program will be used to offset the cost of processing.
