Tyson summer interns–volunteering for the cause

By Ed Nicholson     

A cornerstone of our hunger relief strategy at Tyson Foods is engaging our employees (we call each other team members).  We figure if we can get 10% of our 100,000+  people invovled in the fight against hunger, that could have a significant and noticable impact.  It makes people feel good about the company for which they work. 

One of the biggest benefits of engagement, is it helps people come to a better understanding this very complex issue of hunger. 

We saw this come into play in the past couple of weeks as 40 summer interns working at the Tyson Corporate Headquarters volunteered to spend a day working at the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank. 

We sent a Flip cameral along with them, with which they shot the video attached.
