LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Food Finders Food Bank is welcoming more food to their stock thanks to a large donation.
Tyson gave Food Finders a grant of more than $150,000 for a new mobile food pantry truck.
Food Finders hopes the truck will increase the number of annual meals provided.
Tyson also donated nearly 30,000 pounds of meat to Food Finders.
President and CEO of Food Finders, Katy Bunder, said the summer months are the most difficult for the pantry to keep stock.
"To have this chicken sitting in our freezer ready to go out to people is a huge relief to me because we don't have to go out and find a protein source somewhere," said Bunder.
The new food truck will serve Cass County and surrounding areas.
"Having nutritious fresh chicken is really going to be a great benefit and that will go out in those counties from our mobile pantry and it will also be available to food pantries that exist in those counties," said Bunder.
The meat Tyson donated is equal to more than 118,000 meals.
