RAGBRAI ’09–Day 2–Henderson

By Ed Nicholson

Day two of the 2009 Tyson RAGBRAI efforts.  Day two that team members from our Council Bluffs and Omaha plants came out to prepare and sell food.

I’ll be making the point all week: If you want to see into the heart of a company, don’t look in the boardroom.  Look at the people who make it happen every day.  There are a few in the video above.  Again, I’m humbled to be among their company.

We’re catching people as they’re in line (or on line, if you’re not from the South) and asking them to take a short survey about hunger.  So far, we have about 500 surveys completed, and hope to get to 1000 by the end of the week.  We’ll fill you in once we have time to catch our breath, but a preliminary look indicates we all have some work to do in creating awareness.  We all need to be talking a little bit more.
