DAVENPORT, WA. -- Second Harvest Food Bank reports they are struggling to provide enough protein to feed families in need in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

However, a program called "Beef Counts" kicked off Monday in the hopes of changing that.

At an auction in Davenport, one calf was sold to the highest bidder, donated back, and resold over and over again.

All the buyers donated their winning bids to Second Harvest Food Bank.

Over the past few years, the program has helped raise $50,000.

At Monday's auction, the one calf helped raise $11,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank.
