Tyson Foods donates 12,000 lbs. of meat to Muscatine’s Pearl City Outreach | Local

'Such a blessing...'

Shortly before Christmas, the Tyson Foods plant in Columbus Junction was able to make a donation of 12,000 pounds of meat to the Pearl City Outreach food bank in Muscatine.

COLUMBUS JUNCTION — On Thursday, Tyson Foods announced that, throughout the past fiscal year, it had donated 64 million meals (or 16 million pounds of protein) across the country to fight nationwide hunger.

In a news release, Tim Grailer, senior director of corporate social responsibility said, “We remain committed to addressing food insecurity, supporting our team members and improving the quality of life in the communities where we operate. We know our efforts are stronger through collaboration, and we’re honored to work with a network of outstanding community partners.”

The Columbus Junction Tyson Foods plant donated 12,000 pounds of protein to Pearl City Outreach in Muscatine on December 22.

According to Pastor Sharon Phillips, this donation came just in time — not just for the holidays — but for the people the food bank serves. During the holiday season, Pearl City Outreach puts together food baskets for people in need or who otherwise would not be able to have a holiday meal.

“We help the people that fall between the cracks, and this year we had 150 baskets to make,” Phillips said. “But when we got down to 100, we needed meat desperately. So I talked to Chaplain Joseph Blay at Tyson, and after only a day they brought us what we needed and we were able to help all of these families.”
