Tyson Foods Sends Relief Trailer with Meals to Moore, OK

Supports disaster assistance efforts at the scene of Monday's devastation.
MOORE, OK - Victims of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado are getting a helping hand from Arkansas poultry producer Tyson Foods.

The meat processing giant has dispatched its Meals that Matter™ disaster relief trailer and cooking teams to the scene to feed residents and relief workers.

Depending upon the need, the Tyson teams could be there up to three weeks.

Tyson also plans to provide financial support to the Oklahoma relief effort. The company is matching employee donations to the American Red Cross, dollar-for dollar up to $100,000.

The 53-foot Meals that Matter semi-trailer was first used last year in New York and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy. It is designed to help Tyson set up an organized disaster relief site quickly. It serves as a central supply unit to support Tyson cook teams that bring grills and volunteers to help feed people in need. The unit was also used in 2012 to serve 1,600 people at KNOW Hunger nutrition fairs in Mississippi that were organized by the National Urban League and Tyson Foods.
 
Tyson Foods, Inc., with headquarters in Springdale, is one of the world's largest processors and marketers of chicken, beef and pork and the second-largest food production company in the Fortune 500.
