Tyson Foods, headquartered in Springdale, Ark., will donate more than 80,000 pounds of assorted frozen chicken product to the River Valley Regional Food Bank (RVRFB) on Tuesday, February 28.
Tyson Foods is donating the product to the RVRFB, as part of the company’s strategic long-term
partnership with the food bank.
“Tyson Foods is committed to doing what we can to relieve hunger in the communities where our team members live and work and we’re thankful for our partnership with the River Valley Food Regional Food Bank,” said Tyson Foods Senior Director, Business Operations, Tim Grailer. “We’re proud to provide protein, a high-need item, and ensure the Fort Smith, Arkansas community and those experiencing food insecurity have access to nutritious food.”
The product will be made available to the food bank’s member pantry partners on Tuesday, who will then distribute the product into their respective communities.
“We are so grateful to be able to acquire two 40-foot freezers to expand our capacity for frozen foods, especially protein. Tyson’s generosity will provide our pantry partners the ability to serve their clients in need,” River Valley Regional Food Bank Director Tracy Engel said. “Tyson’s support of the River Valley Regional Food Bank has been a long-term partnership and continues to grow. Tyson heard about our new freezers and wanted to be part of the celebration. Our member partners will be so grateful to know they have access to family sized protein to feed their clients.”
