Paying it Forward

Give Back with VanMeter James

VanMeter James exists to help people connect over meals — the kind of meals that become lore for years to come. Through VanMeter James, founder Rudy Leake wants to share his love and passion for life with his customers and honor everyone producing Certified Angus Beef®. To this end, Rudy has chosen to donate $1 of every purchase to the Colvin Scholarship Fund. Developed when Louis M. “Mick” Colvin retired as the executive director of Certified Angus Beef®, the Colvin Scholarship fund has awarded more than 100 scholarships to students pursuing careers in agriculture.
