For the third year in a row, Walmart, Bimbo Bakeries USA and Tyson Foods have joined forces to help end hunger across the United States.

The three companies donated 15,000 pounds of food – equating to 13,750 meals – to MANNA FoodBank through a partnership with Feeding America.

Representatives from each of the organizations visited MANNA FoodBank today to deliver the food and tour the facility. As part of this partnership, Walmart, Bimbo Bakeries USA and Tyson Foods donated 5,000 pounds of bread and 10,000 pounds of chicken that will be given to individuals and families over the coming weeks.

MANNA FoodBank is a non-profit organization that works to fight hunger in 16 Western North Carolina counties. Partnering with more than 200 agencies, MANNA was able to distribute 18.2 million pounds of food LAST YEAR.

Through its partnerships and individual donations, Feeding America provides food to millions of Americans through a network of 200 member food banks and 60,000 partner agencies.
