Meals that Matter
Tyson Foods Team Members are humbled and proud to support people affected by and responding to disasters by feeding hot, nutritious meals. Our folks have been on the ground helping after 9-11, Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike, Midwest flooding, and tornados in Alabama, Joplin and Moore, OK. Our Meals that Matter® disaster relief semi-trailer was first put into action after Superstorm Sandy in 2012 and was most recently on the ground helping tornado victims in Pilger, NE.
Tyson Foods Partners with Team Rubicon
Tyson Foods is partnering with Team Rubicon, a military veterans’ group, to enhance disaster relief efforts in the United States. The collaboration will combine Team Rubicon’s knowledge of logistics planning in the field with Tyson Foods’ experience in providing food to victims and volunteers.
As part of the partnership, Tyson Foods donated a 53 foot semi-trailer that will serve as Team Rubicon’s command center during relief efforts. The truck includes sleeping quarters and office and storage space for Team Rubicon’s staff and volunteers. Tyson Foods will mobilize the unit alongside the company’s Meals that MatterTM mobile feeding unit, when appropriate, and will work collaboratively onsite to bring assistance to disaster victims and aid workers.
