Tyson Foods has donated 29,000 pounds of boneless chicken to the Capital Area Food Bank in its campaign to help feed the hungry and raise awareness of hunger in America.  Tyson Foods’ year-long “Know Hunger” campaign is focused on helping more people understand and join the effort to eliminate hunger in the United States.  The campaign includes the recent release of a study on public perceptions of hunger, as well as a commitment to donate one million pounds of protein to 37 food banks in 23 U.S. markets.  Last year, the Capital Area Food Bank distributed 27 million pounds of food through more than 700 partner agencies located in Washington, D.C. and surrounding counties in Maryland and Virginia. Tyson Foods has been an active participant in the fight against hunger for a decade, donating more than 78 million pounds of protein, or the equivalent of 300 million meals.  The company partners with Share our Strength, Lift up America, Feed America, and the League of United Latin American Citizens.
