Tyson Presents Large Donation to Northwest Arkansas Food Bank

News

Tyson Foods will present a donation to Northwest Arkansas Food Bank.

Tyson will donate 110,000 pounds of protein to Northwest Arkansas Food Bank as part of their Miles that Matter program. This significant donation provides more than 440,000 servings of protein, an essential part of a well-balanced meal, to help the one in seven individuals in Northwest Arkansas who face hunger every day.

Tyson Foods has now surpassed the 9 million pounds donation milestone, being the largest protein donor since established.

Three years after making the commitment, Tyson Foods is less than $5 million away from reaching its goal. As of the end of its 2018 fiscal year, Tyson had donated more than $45,875,000 toward hunger relief in the form of product donations and charitable grants.

Through its Miles that Matter program, for every mile a team member walks, runs or cycles, the company donates a pound of protein to area food banks. This season, teams logged enough miles to donate 275,000 pounds of protein to local hunger relief agencies in its corporate communities.
