Facebook Poll Results Announced

Thank you for you for rallying your community and raising hunger awareness during Tyson’s Hunger Action Month Facebook Poll . A total of 37,941 votes were cast.

Congratulations to the top three finishers!

The final results are:

Food Bank of the Albemarle- Elizabeth City, NC: (9,467 votes)
Yuma Community Food Bank- Yuma, AZ: (9, 435 votes)
Mississippi Food Network- Jackson, MS: (3, 425 votes)

Feeding the Valley Food Bank- Columbus, GA: (1,264 votes)

The top three finishers will receive a truckload of food in the next month or so. BUT, since participation has been so great, we’ve decided that sometime in the next year, all the participating foodbanks will get a truckload of food. It will probably take us a while to get to everyone, but we will. Thanks again for your participation.

Please stay involved in hunger relief.   A great way to start is by connecting with our local foodbank or going to Feeding America’s Hunger Action Center.   The need is so great, and there’s so much to be done.

    A great big THANK YOU to Tyson Foods!! Our pantry is located in Grenada, MS and we were voting and posting and sharing day and night during this effort on Facebook for the MS Food Network! What a great way to bring communities together for a common cause and also help stamp out hunger in our country!

    Thank all of you that voted for Food Bank of the Albermarl. They came in first place! They will be getting the food in the next month. The great news is that the response was so great that Tyson is going to supply all ten contestants in the coming year! We need more companies stepping up to the plate in these economic times. THANK YOU TYSON !
