KENTUCKY, Ark. — Tyson Foods announced they have partnered with Walmart to donate 600,000 meals and deploy other disaster relief efforts to help support parts of Kentucky, Tennessee and other states impacted by the recent tornadoes.
“We’re deeply saddened by the damage and loss of life caused by this powerful storm and we want to do our part to help,” said John R. Tyson, executive vice president & chief sustainability officer of Tyson Foods. “We’re pitching in to help Tyson team members who have experienced storm damage, and we will continue to work with local community partners to learn where our resources and expertise can be best utilized.”
Tyson will provide the meals to the following areas:
