Food Bank of Iowa receives $150,000 grant from Tyson Foods


Food Bank of Iowa announced it has received a $150,000 grant from Tyson Foods. The money was used to support a transportation and equipment package, including a new refrigerated truck that will allow the organization to expand its programming and distribution efforts along with equipment for the distribution center. “We are thrilled to receive this grant from Tyson Foods,” said Michelle Book, president and CEO of Food Bank of Iowa. “This new equipment will help us increase our distribution efforts to make sure hungry Iowans get the quality, nutritious food they need.” Food insecurity affects 1 in 9 Iowans, leaving them unsure of their next meal. Food Bank of Iowa distributes food to more than 625 partners across 55 counties. In conjunction with the $150,000 Tyson grant, the truck purchase was made possible by support from Ruan Transportation and Truck Co.
