Optimized in Oklahoma

In the past two years, Tyson Foods Broken Bow, Oklahoma, has donated more than 36,000 pounds of protein to local food pantries, youth centers, senior citizen centers, and nursing homes in McCurtain County.

Tyson Foods Grannis-Broken Bow complex earned a Partnership Award from Broken Bow Main Street organization during their 2013 Awards Banquet. The complex donates and cooks protein for the event each year and actively works to support the organization.

The Grannis-Broken Bow complex is proud to support education in their local communities. The facility assisted Rector Johnson Middle School in Broken Bow as they began preparing students for their Annual State Mandated Testing. Each of the 330 students received a Tyson® branded gift bag containing school supplies and snacks donated from area businesses.

Team Members from the Tyson Foods Grannis-Broken Bow complex actively support 4H programs in the region and encourage involvement in agricultural activities for young people in towns and surrounding areas.

This complex is also a proud supporter of local colleges, including a 2014 monetary donation to the Golf Classic program at Southeastern Oklahoma State University - McCurtain County Campus. The complex recently awarded a $1,000 Tyson Foods Grower Scholarship for a local student to pursue a degree at Eastern Oklahoma State College.

Tyson Foods Broken Bow was pleased to assist the Idabel Kiwanis Club in support of their 2014 scholarship fundraiser.  The money raised from this year's Pancake Day will be used to award scholarships, help buy books and purchase needed equipment for area schools.
