food-donation-tysonsfood-photoTyson Foods, one of the largest food production companies in the US, has donated one million pounds of boneless chicken to 37 food banks across the country.  Each food bank will receive approximately 29,000 pounds of high quality protein, enough to serve 116,000 meals in each community.

Food banks are often short on foods high in protein like fresh meat or poultry, which is important for growth and development in children and offers minerals like iron, which is often deficient in the diets of girls and women.

Tyson Foods has been fighting hunger in the U.S. for a decade, donating 78 million pounds of protein, or the equivalent of 312 million meals.  The company partners with the Food Research and Action Center, Share Our Strength, Lift Up America, Feeding America, and the League of United Latin American Citizens to raise awareness and help feed the hungry across the nation.
