The River Valley Regional Food Bank (RVRFB), in partnership with Tyson Foods hosted a community food giveaway at the food bank location at 1617 South Zero Street in Fort Smith on Thursday, September 10.

Tyson Foods donated 40,000 pounds of chicken for the event. The RVRFB distributed this generous gift of proteins to the community and our agency partners.

This event is in celebration of Hunger Action Day, on Thursday, Sept. 10. Hunger Action Day is a day when Feeding America food banks (like the RVRFB) come together to advocate and focus our efforts on ending hunger in our communities.
