A Tyson Foods, Inc. Web site now includes features designed to help communicate hunger-relief efforts and success stories.
Tyson Hunger Relief has been relaunched as a way to increase awareness, help meet the needs of hunger-relief agencies across the U.S., and share the accomplishments of individuals and organizations feeding the nation’s hungry.
Hunger-relief is Tyson Foods’ number one philanthropic objective, with much of their initiatives done through partnerships with U.S. hunger-relief organizations such as Feeding America (formerly America’s Second Harvest). Visitors to Tyson Hunger Relief will find that blog-style social-networking features have been added so they can post comments about local hunger-relief efforts, including community, agency or organizational needs, accomplishments and information. Tyson Hunger Relief now also includes an interactive forum with YouTube videos, RSS News Feeds and blog posts.
The Web site features Hunger All-StarsÂ®, a recognition given to individuals or groups demonstrating Tyson Food’s belief that one person, one family or one group can make a difference in the fight against hunger. Visitors are encouraged to nominate Hunger All-Star candidates, who are then featured on the site. Tyson Foods selects a Hunger All-Star of the Month, whose local Feeding America member food bank receives a donation of a truckload of TysonÂ® products.
Since 2000, Tyson Foods has donated 51 million pounds of beef, chicken and porkâ€”enough food for 204 million mealsâ€”to local food banks, food pantries and other hunger-relief organizations serving their communities’ needs.
