Four years ago, Tyson Foods and Feeding America formed an innovative partnership with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), in which we committed to collaboratively donating one million pounds of food into communities with significant Hispanic populations and strong LULAC Councils.  That milestone has long been surpassed.  To see some of the communities into which this food has gone, see this Google map.

Yesterday, we began our fifth year of this partnership by donating a truckload of Tyson products (31K lbs.) at the National LULAC Conference to Roadrunner Food Bank of Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

We plan on keeping going.  As important as the food donated, bringing more people into the fight against hunger is what is going to create long-term impact from partnerships like this.

It’s a great honor to have great partners.  Working together, we know we make a difference.
