Hike and Bike Trail Extension to JBS Facility

Grand Island, Nebraska

Hike and Bike Trail Extension

JBS USA contributed $500,000 toward the expansion of a hike and bike trail to the JBS Grand Island facility. The existing trail will be expanded eastward by one mile and will be 10-feet wide and constructed of 6-inch thick concrete. In addition to providing a safe, eco-friendly route to work for team members of JBS Grand Island, this project will also extend the path for community exercise and enjoyment.

JBS Grand Island hosted a groundbreaking for the hike and bike trail on March 29, 2022, including a special appearance from Grand Island Mayor Roger Steele. The trail will be completed in July 2022.

Partner: City of Grand Island Park and Recreation

Completion Date: Completed

During the coronavirus pandemic, JBS USA has been a community partner and generously donated beef to local food banks and also provided leadership and innovation on worker safety and plant management. The Hometown Strong initiative continues JBS USA’s commitment to our community and our future, and we look forward to a wonderful community partnership.
