VVS recently teamed with Cargill in Dodge City, KS, to smoke 1,200 lbs. of brisket, grill 1,800 ears of corn and cook a mountain of baked beans. The cookout was held during the annual Dodge City Days at the Round Up Rodeo. Proceeds from the feed were donated to a local charity and helped to highlight Cargill’s continuing efforts of being involved in their community. With VVS’ support, Cargill was able to feed over 1,000 hungry customers and the community event was a success. A special thanks to everybody at Cargill in Dodge City and to VVS Site Manager Alisia Bravo and staff.

What does it take to feed 7,000 hungry National Beef employees and their families? Careful planning and hard work! VVS Canteen site manager, David Castillo and assistant manager, Deanna Martinez began setting up the Western State Bank Expo Center in Dodge City, Kansas two days in advance and figuring out the best layout to accommodate the large number of attendees. Another challenge to overcome was the distance between the Expo center and the groups’ kitchen facility. Careful planning and organization was used to figure out the cooking schedules and the multiple deliveries needed to keep food hot and in supply. The event was a success! Great job to everyone involved!
