Last month, Tyson Foods and Lift Up America came together to donate more than 30,000 pounds of protein to the Food Bank. Volunteers from Austin Aztex, Austin Toros, Lift Up America and Tyson Foods helped load the donation onto the trucks of CAFB Partner Agencies.
“This significant food donation from Tyson will allow us to impact lives when the need for food has never been greater,” said Adrienne Longenecker, chief development officer for Capital Area Food Bank. “Donations of high-protein foods are especially valuable as they allow us to provide our agencies with more healthy, nutritious options.”
Our mission requires that we nourish those in need of emergency food assistance, not simply provide food. With so much at stake – 41 percent of our clients are children – donations like these bring us closer to a well-nourished community and a brighter future for our youngest clients. Thanks to all who participated to help make this event a success.
