Tyson Foods, NACS Give to Las Vegas Food Bank

SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Tyson Foods Inc. and the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) donated a truckload of protein September 28 to Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas to help eliminate hunger in southern Nevada.

Three Square, which serves Clark, Esmeralda, Lincoln and Nye counties, will distribute the donated food through its service network of agency partners including nonprofit and faith-based organizations.

With this donation, Tyson Foods has provided nearly 470,000 pounds of product to Three Square throughout the years.

“Protein is a precious resource to a food bank and often is hard to come by due to higher costs,” said Brian Burton, CEO and president of Three Square Food Bank. “The contributions of companies such as Tyson Foods allow us to carry out our mission of providing wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. We are extremely grateful for this generous donation, which will be distributed to food-insecure individuals in southern Nevada.”

With September being Hunger Action Month and the annual NACS Show—one of the Top 40 largest trade shows in the United States—just two weeks away, this is the perfect time for this donation, said Jeff Lenard, vice president of NACS’ strategic industry initiatives.

“Convenience stores are closely tied to the communities they serve, especially around charitable giving. Our industry donated close to $100 million last year to local charities and we are delighted to work with these great partners to give back to Las Vegas,” Lenard said.

Tyson Foods’ “KNOW Hunger” campaign is focused on helping more people understand and join the effort to eliminate hunger in America. The company partners with Feeding America, Share Our Strength and Lift Up America to raise awareness and help feed the hungry across the nation. Since 2000, Tyson Foods has donated more than 100 million pounds of protein in the United States.

Earlier this month, Tyson Foods announced its renewed commitment to hunger relief by pledging $50 million in cash and in-kind donations over the next five years in the fight against hunger, with a special focus on innovative initiatives at the local level.

“Partnering with organizations like Three Square Food Bank and NACS is important to us in raising awareness about food insecurity in communities all around the U.S.,” said Kevin Miller, senior marketing manager for Tyson Foods. “In this community alone, Three Square distributes more than 34 million pounds of food and product each year. We’re honored to get to be a part of that.”

Tyson Foods Inc., Springdale, Ark., is one of the world’s largest producers of chicken, beef, pork and prepared foods that include leading brands such as Tyson, Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm, Sara Lee, Ball Park, Wright, Aidells and State Fair.
