Our Troops Need New Mexico Jerky!

Supporting the Armed Forces Through Care Packages

When a family came in to send a beef jerky care package to their son serving in the military in Iraq, Art knew he had to give back to our soldiers. In March 2003, Jerky by Art started sending care packages to troops in combat zones as a way to remind them of our support.

“I do it for them because they need something from back home. To let them know we’re still thinking about them,” Art said about why he sends troops care packages full of jerky.

A Way To Commemorate Our Soldiers’ Hard Work

Throughout the years, Jerky by Art has implemented several care package programs in response to the developing needs within the military community. Not only do they care packages inform our troops of our support, but the jerky itself is also a good source of protein to keep them fueled up. Additionally, the flavors will remind them of home—ensuring that wherever they are stationed, a bit of New Mexico is there with them.

See a story below from our local news station that shows the troops giving a little something back.

Why Jerky Is a Great Idea for Care Packages

It has a three-month shelf life and is high in protein, low in fat. It’s an easy-to-eat snack that’s not messy and can be eaten on the go. Plus, it just tastes so good!
