Tyson Foods Donates 2M Meals For Storm Relief In Kentucky

Tyson Foods

Springdale, Arkansas-based Tyson Foods is donating two million meals and deploying other disaster relief efforts to support storm victims, volunteers and first responders in Hazard, Kentucky, which was devastated by recent flooding.

The company is partnering with Walmart to help distribute more than 500,000 pounds of protein. Plans are also underway to provide food and assistance to additional communities.

“We’re deeply saddened by the damage and loss of life caused by the catastrophic flooding and we want to do our part to help,” said John R. Tyson, EVP and chief sustainability officer of Tyson Foods. “We’re working with our local community partners to amplify their support and do our best to provide food and supplies to those who need it.”

Tyson Foods plans to locate its Meals That Matter disaster relief trailer at Walmart in Hazard and will have volunteers on site who will distribute food and water. The volunteers involved include grill teams from Tyson Foods’ facilities in Humboldt and Goodlettsville, Tennessee; Dexter, Missouri; Pine Bluff and Green Forest, Arkansas; and Corydon, Indiana.

Volunteers from other company locations in Arkansas will also assist.

Founded in 1935 by John W. Tyson and grown under four generations of family leadership, Tyson Foods has a broad portfolio of products and brands like Tyson, Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm, Ball Park, Wright, Aidells, ibp and State Fair. The company had 137,000 team members in October 2021.
