Tyson product donations accompanied the kickoff celebrations of six Student Food Drives across the U.S. This year, Student Food Drives will be benefiting America’s Second Harvest Food Banks in Moline, Illinois; Amarillo, Texas; Memphis, Tennessee; Northest Arkansas; Waterloo, Iowa; and Phoenix, Arizona.
Tyson donated a truckload of food for each event, with product totalling more than 212,000 pounds. The donations will be divided among student teams to account for their totals in the food drives.
The students will be blogging about their experience in the Student Food Drive at www.studentfooddrive.org.
