Hunger Heroes

Tyson Foods is committed to helping people understand and join the effort to eliminate hunger in America. Since 2000, we’ve donated more than 100 million pounds of protein in the United States, and in 2015, we announced our continued commitment to the fight by pledging $50 million in cash and in-kind donations over the next five years.

As part of this pledge, we are recognizing individuals on the frontlines of fighting hunger in their communities. People who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves, go to work and make a difference through heroic deeds.
