Tyson Foods Donates Truckload of Protein to Las Vegas Food Bank
Tyson Foods, Inc.
 recently donated 31,000 pounds of protein to Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas today to help fight hunger in southern Nevada. 

Three Square, a member of the Feeding America network 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 providing daily meals and food pantry services to food insecure Nevadans.

With today’s donation, Tyson Foods has provided more than 563,000 pounds of product to Three Square throughout the years.

“Foods that are rich in protein are vital to a food bank,” said Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square Food Bank. “This generous donation will help Three Square provide individuals and families with an important source of protein that they may otherwise go without,” Burton continued. “On behalf of the one in seven people struggling with hunger in Southern Nevada, we are incredibly grateful to Tyson Foods and their longstanding commitment to Three Square’s mission of pursuing a hunger-free community.”

Among all protein processors, Tyson Foods is the largest donor of meat and poultry to Feeding America and its network of food banks. Tyson Foods has been an active participant in the fight against hunger since 2000, donating more than 113 million pounds of protein. In 2015, Tyson Foods pledged $50 million in cash or in-kind donations by 2020 to fight hunger, with a special focus on innovative initiatives at the local level.

“We’re proud to support Three Square Food Bank and appreciate its dedication to providing hunger relief for the people of its community,” said Debra Vernon, senior director of corporate social responsibility for Tyson Foods. “From backpack feeding programs for kids, to supplementing the diets of food-insecure senior citizens, the food bank is making a difference and this donation will help even more lives.”
