Livestock Growers Help Feed Homeless

Residents of Wayside Christian Mission sat down yesterday to dishes of prime beef, lamb and pork along with mashed potatoes and other trimmings during an annual Christmas event sponsored by livestock growers.

"It's just beautiful," said resident Adrienne Berry. "I've been kind of down over the holidays, being homeless. It makes you feel good, like you're special."

The meat came from two each of the champion steers, hogs and lambs from last month's annual North American International Livestock Expo, held in Louisville.

  1. I love that the farmers donate the meat to the shelter. What a great program!

    For some reason your blog wasn't coming into my reader for awhile. I've been catching up with you for the last few weeks. You take such beautiful pictures!
