TYSON FOODS DONATION AND BEEF COUNTS DONATION – OCTOBER 2
TYSON FOODS DONATION
Second Harvest gratefully accepted a donation of 30,000 pounds of chicken from Tyson Foods on Monday, Sept. 28. The donation will help families facing hunger in the Tri-Cities and surrounding areas during the COVID-19 crisis. Tyson Foods has been an important partner to Second Harvest since 2006 and has supported the construction of the Pasco hunger solution center, Second Harvest’s annual Taking a Bite out of Hunger event and Bite2Go. They also granted Second Harvest $90,000 to install a large racking system to improve the Pasco hunger solution center’s storage capacity. Read more about their recent donation here. Thank you, Tyson, for helping ensure that everyone in our community can get the food they need during this challenging time.
BEEF COUNTS DONATION
The Washington Beef Commission presented a generous donation of $13,157 to Second Harvest this week to help alleviate hunger during the COVID-19 crisis. This gift is part of the Beef Counts program, which raises money from beef producers and other donors to provide high-quality protein to local families in need. The money was raised at an annual rollover auction in September and is being donated to hunger-relief organizations across the state. This year, the Beef Counts program passed the $1 million mark in funds raised to provide beef to help people facing hunger. Read more about their donation here. Thank you, Washington Beef Commission and Beef Counts supporters, for your generous donation to serve our community!
