SPRINGDALE, ARK. — Tyson Foods Inc. announced that it deployed its Meals that Matter disaster relief program to Rolling Fork, Miss., to serve meals to victims, volunteers and first responders of the recent tornadoes in the area.

The meat company said it partnered with Walmart to set up cooking operations at South Delta Elementary School starting on March 28 to serve 500,000 lbs or two million servings of protein. This also included bulk donations of protein and ice. Bulk donations will be distributed with a drive-thru system.

Meals that Matter teams plan to stay in in Rolling Fork for at least a week. 

Tyson Foods’ Meals that Matter program provides a 53-foot semi-trailer with enough refrigerated space to store up to 20,000 lbs of product for an initial response and dry storage to transport supplies to set up a feeding site and support for Tyson cook teams to provide crisis relief.
