USA; Tyson Foods, Inc., arranges emergency relief efforts
In response to Tuesday's tragic attacks on New York City and Washington D.C., and the air disaster in Pennsylvania, Tyson Foods, Inc., America's largest producer of chicken, is making arrangements to donate more than 70,000 pounds (or 350,000 meals) of fully cooked, ready to eat breaded chicken product to feed emergency workers and medical personnel. Tyson is working with its partner in hunger relief efforts, Share Our Strength, to expeditiously get these donations to those who need them. In addition to sending product this week, Tyson team members and volunteers will be at disaster relief feeding sites administered by the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross to cook and distribute additional chicken products. Tyson team members throughout the country have responded to local blood drives in their areas.
