For families in the Rio Grande Valley, food insecurity knows no season. In conjunction with a company-wide effort to end food insecurity, Tyson Foods announced today a donation of 29,900 pounds of protein to Rio Grande Valley Food Bank located in McAllen, Texas. Tyson representatives made the announcement at the El Tule Boys and Girls Club in Edinburg at an event attended by U.S. Representative Ruben Hinojosa, who is a member of the food bank advisory board. The donation from Tyson Foods will help the food bank serve its constituents a well-balanced meal and was made in conjunction with Hispanic Engineering Science and Technology Week, an event Tyson Foods is sponsoring in Edinburg at the University of Texas-Pan American.
