Provo City School District has worked towards increasing farm-to-table sourced meals this year. Now partnering with Snowden Meats, a family-owned business based in Colorado, the school district is offering more meal options for locally sourced meats, moving forward on its journey towards an enriched, farm-to-table cuisine.
Recently, the district ordered 116 cases of savory beef patties, thus “beefing up” our hamburger and cheeseburger options. After a successful trial run with Snowden Meats, the district is expanding its efforts by ordering more locally sourced meats for chili, lasagna, sloppy joes, and a myriad of ground beef recipes.
Snowden Meats, at its core, is a family affair. Travis and Sarajane Snowden and Travis’s father, Bob Snowden, comprise the Snowden Farm business. Growing up on cattle ranches, the Snowdens developed a deep passion for agriculture at a young age. Their dream was to find a way to be involved in the cattle industry for themselves and future generations.
Sarajane Snowden initiated the venture to provide their community with clean, locally grown beef, processed with no added dyes or additives. Their commitment to transparency and quality is evident in every aspect of their operation.
Snowden Meats actively participates in a movement where consumers increasingly seek to purchase directly from the ranchers raising the livestock to ensure a superior product, creating a more direct and sustainable supply chain. You can trust the family, and you can trust that you’re eating healthy. It’s pasture-grain-fed and dry-aged before packaging. Their meticulous processes enhance the flavor and tenderness of the meat, ensuring that every bite is a delight for our students.
We can’t overstate this fact, but this is food from a local ranch. The Snowdens hand-deliver the meat and keep in touch with our district specialists. Provo City School District is proud to stand by its commitment to sustainability and locally sourced, ethically farmed produce, ensuring that every student can enjoy a meal that reflects the essence of our fields, plains, and community.
