After seeing a tweet from Amy Sherman of Cooking with Amy about the Hunger Challenge, Ed Nicholson, Director of Community and Public Relations at Tyson Foods, has offered to send up to 200,000 pounds of high-quality, protein-rich foods (chicken, meatballs, lunchmeat, etc.) to six Bay Area food banks. That's six tractor-trailerloads of the most hard-to-come-by foods desperately needed by food banks!
They will donate 100 pounds of food for every comment posted on a special web page, so please help spread the word. Here's what you need to do:
1) Go to the special Tyson Foods Hunger Relief page.
2) Read the information about hunger in the Bay Area and post a comment. (NOTE: the format asks for an email address to prevent spam, but Tyson guarantees they will not harvest emails or use them for any other purpose whatsoever.)
3) Tyson adds another 100 pounds of high-quality, protein-rich foods (chicken, meatballs, lunchmeat, etc.) to trucks heading for 6 Bay Area food banks!
