Tyson Foods To Invest $1 Million In Community School Projects

Tyson Foods announced plans Tuesday to invest $1 million in 46 school districts in 37 communities where the meat giant operates. The grants are part of the DonorsChoose.org projects for schools teaching Pre-K-12 in Tyson Foods districts.

The investment will bring much-needed resources to schools and introduce teachers to a source of potential support for future projects, the company noted in a news release.

Between Aug. 1, 2019, and Jan. 29, 2020, Tyson Foods will fully fund projects posted by teachers in qualifying school districts who request up to $1,000 in classroom resources. Funding will be applied towards projects the first Monday of every month, up to $26,388 for each plant community. Tyson Foods said $50,000 has been allocated for the Springdale School District, where the company’s headquarters is located.     MORE
