Larry and Marty Mach, parents of Bishop Neumann Catholic High School Alumni Ross, Ryan and Wendy, were well known for their community spirit and volunteerism. Marty enjoyed entertaining family and friends, baking kolaches and yodeling while Larry was a “Nebraska Cattleman” who served on the Saunders County Livestock Association Board of Directors. At the beginning of the school year Larry contacted Bishop Neumann to try and organize a beef booster program that offers local beef options to feed the students of Saunders Catholic Schools. Larry’s goal was one cow a month (10 per year) with processing costs donated by both members of the community and new beef booster program.
Schools will utilize high quality, locally raised beef for their lunches rather than purchasing beef through a food service provider. It will create a connection between the school and the community and increases the amount of beef served to students weekly/monthly. Money saved will enhance the school lunch program to provide more options to students.
We are trying to get this program off and running as soon as possible. The USDA approved processing facility has been secured. We now need to secure the beef and funding necessary to proceed with this project. Keep in mind all donations (cash & cow) are tax deductible. Click the link below to donate.
