A special mobile feeding unit created by Tyson Foods, Inc., to assist with disaster relief efforts is headed to Moore, Okla. with hot meals including 20,000 pounds of chicken, beef and pork.
The truck departed Tyson’s headquarters in Springdale, Ark. on Tuesday morning. ArkansasMatters.com reports crews aboard the truck will serve victims and volunteers in addition to providing tents, sanitation supplies and a Wi-Fi hot spot.
Tyson unveiled the 53-foot semi-trailer in April 2012.
"For decades we've responded to disasters in or near our plant communities in 26 states by doing what we do best: feeding people," John Tyson, Chairman of Tyson Foods said last April. "When disasters strike, our team members mobilize and bring in grills, food and volunteers to help out, sometimes for multiple days or even weeks. Our 'Meals that Matter' truck will help those teams by giving them all the supplies they need to make it easier to help."
