About $2 million of that donation was in the form of 35,000 Wagyu steaks that went to food banks and other nonprofits in San Francisco.

All told, the company gave out about 200,000 steaks to communities that include New York City, Seattle and Los Angeles.

In New York, the steaks have been delivered to Northwell Health’s 23 hospitals as a gesture of support to front-line medical responders.

“Hospitality workers are making extraordinary sacrifices right now, and we’re grateful for the spirit of caring and community that Snake River Farms and Newport Meat are showing with this generous donation.”
