LIMA, Ohio, June 17, 2008 – Bob and Bill Boyer dedicate themselves each week to helping the hungry in Lima. Today Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE:TSN) recognized the difference that Bob and Bill’s volunteer work has made in the lives of families in Ohio and selected the Boyers as the next Hunger All-Stars, an honor that comes with a donation of more than 15 tons of protein to the West Ohio Food Bank.
The Boyer’s volunteerism is an excellent example of the Hunger All-Star program’s belief that one person, and one family, can make a difference in the fight against hunger. Bob celebrated his 80th birthday this year, and three days each week brings his son Bill to the food bank to volunteer. Bill is wheelchair bound and Bob helps his son navigate from the car to the volunteer assignment for the day.
