LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Grand champion meat is helping feed the homeless in Louisville.
Volunteers served lamb and beef to about 350 homeless men, women and children at Wayside Christian Mission on Thursday. The meat is from the North American International Livestock Exposition "Sale of Champions" that was held in Louisville last month.
About five tons of meat was donated to Kentucky Harvest.
"We've been doing this for over 20 years," said L.B. Hocker, chairman of the Sale of Champions, adding that the event is a "great thing" and a "wonderful meal."
The rest of the meat will be distributed to kitchens throughout the area, and 10 percent of the Sale of Champions total of $9,600 was given to the Blessings in a Backpack program.
