Georgia National Fair in Perry, Ga.
GBB is once again setting up The Beef Story display, which takes visitors from farm to fork. The exhibit includes stations on production, the environment, nutrition, food safety, grading and byproducts. This year, GBB partnered with American National CattleWomen to bring new and exciting programs to the exhibit: Representatives from the National Beef Ambassadors and National Beef Speakers Bureau will join the team to assist with hands-on activities.

Taste of Atlanta in Atlanta, Ga.
Accommodations will be provided for volunteers who've traveled in from more than 100 miles and who volunteer at least one day.
This is one of GBB's largest consumer events, reaching more than 40,000 people. This year we'll be serving beef brisket samples and handing out recipe and nutritional brochures. The hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. We would like to request volunteers to help grill, assemble and distribute brisket samples.

GBB and GCA will set up an exhibit table in the Beef Pavillion area from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are looking for volunteers to distribute materials at our booth and talk with farmers, ranchers and youth about our organizations and the beef industry. There is also an opportunity to reach consumers and support the Georgia CattleWomen at their beef promotion booth in the Family Living building.
