Meat Hunger is a youth-led livestock auction buyer’s group that uses its profits to help high schoolers prepare for college. In partnership with Meat Hunger, up to 75% of its animal products will go to Cultivate Food Rescue. 

With the support of Meat Hunger and other area partners, Cultivate is able to feed many more children who would otherwise go hungry.

Meat Hunger purchases livestock projects of fellow St. Joseph County 4-H members at the annual St. Joseph County Livestock Auction. That meat is then processed through Hoosier Feeding the Hungry – for free.

Who Benefits? 4-H youth who sell their livestock projects through the auction are paid above market price. These profits help fund the group’s annual project and prepare for college.

The Indiana 4-H Youth Development Program provides real-life educational opportunities to youth. These programs work to help young people reach their full potential and have a positive impact on their world.

And, donors to Meat Hunger are publicly recognized for their support at the St. Joseph County 4-H Fair and during the St. Joseph County Livestock Auction. Cultivate thrilled to be partnering with Meat Hunger for the 2019/2020 school year!
