Banding Together to Help Federal Workers Feed Their Families
Pat Bourke, Manager of Corporate Social Responsibility
In times of crisis, Tyson Foods is there to help. That’s one of the top reasons I love working for this company.
In the midst of the longest government shutdown in history, hundreds of thousands of federal workers are going without pay. So, to help them put food on the table for their families, Tyson has rallied our troops and stepped up to deliver more than 85 tons of food to the Washington D.C. area. That’s about 685,000 meals flowing into the area this month and into February.
To the drivers who are bravely navigating winter storms … to the fleet management who are calling the shots behind the scenes …. I want to say “thank you” for all that you are doing to bring relief to these workers and their families. Whether you’re faced with tackling a special situation like this one, a disaster relief scenario, or just the day-to-day challenges of the business, you never fail to rise to the occasion. You are the true heroes of this operation.
