Tyson Powers the Fight Against Childhood Hunger in Buffalo
BUFFALO, N.Y., July 28, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Tyson announced today that it will be delivering a 35,000-pound gift to the Food Bank of Western New York on Friday and to one of its food banks agencies, Son Fest Pavilion summer youth program. In celebration of the donation, Tyson team members grilled lunch for the children and parents involved in Son Fest and other community members. With limited use of free lunch programs in the summertime, a vacation from school can also mean an absence of well-balanced meals for some Western New York children. Thanks to a donation from Tyson Foods Inc., local families will have one less choice to make. As part of an internal company fundraising competition to end childhood hunger, the local Tyson plant team raised $895 through a one-day bake sale and won a protein donation gift from Tyson to give to its community.
