(KSL News) Nearly 70,000 pounds of frozen meat soon will make its way to Utahns in need.

Twenty-three Utah businesses--including Questar, Ivory Homes and the LDS Foundation--teamed up to buy 4-H animals at auction then have them processed into food.

Local 4-H clubs helped the businesses sort the meat for distribution today. "These kids are learning at a very young age that when we really make a contribution in our lives is when we're helping someone else," explained Kelly Maxfield, vice president of Questar Corporation and 4-H leader.

The meat was donated to the Utah Food Bank, which will distribute it to 11 Utah counties.
