Eat Beef, Earn Points and Win Prizes

Kelly Keirn | April 18, 2024

Are you a beef lover? 

The Ohio Beef Council (OBC) is bringing back the Eat Beef Ohio Passport this summer and it’s better than ever. Visit participating restaurants and select meat markets to eat beef, earn points, and win prizes. The program kicks off Beef Month on May 1, 2024, and runs through the end of September.   

The passport, funded by Ohio’s beef farm families through the Beef Checkoff program, highlights beef’s versatility with cuisines ranging from American Steak House to authentic Filipino and Lebanese flavors. And let’s not forget Ohio’s best beef burgers and go-to deli sandwiches. Each location offers something for everyone, and each beef meal enjoyed earns points towards prizes including a drawing for a beef grand prize pack.   

“Ohio’s cattle farmers take great pride in the beef they raise. We think the change of seasons is a great time to kick off this statewide celebration of beef,” said Ohio Beef Council Chairman Erin Stickel “We look forward to sharing great beef-eating experiences with all of Ohio.”   

The Eat Beef Ohio Passport is free and easy to use. Restaurant goers can visit to sign up for the pass or by scanning QR codes found at each participating location. Select locations offer special discounts just for pass holders.
