For the third consecutive year, Team Members from the Tyson Iowa plants will be preparing and selling food along the route of the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI). 75% of the profits will go to childhood hunger programs in or near the towns in which the food is being sold. 25% will go to our national hunger relief partner, Share Our Strength, who will be administering the grants to the local non-profit organizations.
This is an annual event that’s been incredibly successful for the past two years, It’s always fun. Great to see people from all over the United States on the week-long event that hosts a crowd about as diverse as any you’ll ever see in your entire lifetime.
Today, teams from our Omaha and Council Bluffs plants worked as fast as they could, turning out hot dogs, and ribeye and chicken sandwiches to feed a hungry throng.
Tomorrow (Sunday) we’ll be set up in Henderson selling omelettes for breakfast and chicken sandwiches for lunch For a complete list of towns, along with the menus, see the RAGBRAI blog.
It’s going to be fun! Stay tuned. We’ll be posting every day.
