Springdale, Arkansas-based Tyson Foods is donating four million meals and deploying other disaster relief efforts to support those impacted by the recent flooding and severe weather from Hurricane Ian in Florida.

The company is partnering with Walmart to help distribute more than one million pounds of protein to feed those in need in Fort Myers, Florida, and the surrounding areas. The company is also partnering with Publix, Feeding America and three of its local member food banks, All Faiths Food Bank, Harry Chapin Food Bank and Feeding Tampa Bay, to provide protein to people affected by the storm.

In addition, the company will provide support to Feeding America and other relief agencies to serve the ongoing needs of the community as it moves from response to recovery in the wake of the storm.

“The impact of Hurricane Ian is absolutely devastating and we’re deploying resources where we can make the most impact,” said Tim Grailer, senior director of corporate social responsibility, Tyson Foods.

“This response wouldn’t be possible without the support of our disaster relief partners and customers, who are all volunteering time and resources to make sure our response is as successful as possible. Our hearts go out to those who suffered tremendous losses in the wake of Hurricane Ian.”

Tyson Foods plans to locate its “Meals That Matter” disaster relief trailer at Walmart in Fort Myers and will have volunteers on site who will distribute food, water and ice. The volunteers involved include grill teams from Tyson Foods’ facilities in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. Volunteers from other Tyson 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 portfolio of products and brands like Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm, Ball Park, Wright, Aidells, ibp and State Fair.
