Beef Grant

 “Beef for the Classroom” is a program funded by beef producers through their beef checkoff administered by the Colorado Beef Council.  Started in 2001, this program provides financial support for the use of beef products in senior high school Family and Consumer Science and Catering/ProStart courses. It reinforces lessons about lean beef selection, storage, preparation and nutrition.  The Colorado Beef Council offers free educational materials to teachers to support classrooms.


All Family & Consumer Science programs in Colorado high schools are eligible for the program.
