On Aug. 18, 2016 KNOW Hunger, launched in 2012 by Tyson Foods and the National Urban League as a way to address and spread awareness of food insecurity, announced the launch of its next phase of the partnership with KNOW Hunger Chicago, a partnership with Tyson Foods, Chicago Urban League and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The program, made possible by a $150,000 grant from Tyson Foods to National Urban League, launched at the Greater Chicago Food Depository with a donation of 33,000 pounds of protein.
Tyson Foods is proud to partner with two of Chicago’s preeminent non-profits – the Chicago Urban League and Greater Chicago Food Depository – for this one-year campaign that aims to raise awareness about hunger and nutrition through large scale protein donations, thought leadership exercises, community engagement events and hunger education opportunities.
The KNOW Hunger initiative is entering its fourth year of partnership with National Urban League, having started in Mississippi, spent two years in Nashville, Tennessee before making its way to Chicago. Throughout KNOW Hunger’s tenure, the program has impacted thousands of members of the community, key influencers and elected officials that together have worked to educate the community on the perils of hunger.
“We chose Chicago because of the high concentration of food insecurity in the area – 1 in 6 of our neighbors — around 812,000 – turn to the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s network for assistance,” said Deb Sinta, Vice President of Talent and Culture, Tyson Foods. “Chicago was also very fitting as the next KNOW Hunger city because of the large company presence we have in the Chicagoland area. We want to give back to the community any way we can.”
