WHY: The event is significant because:

- In addition to the truckload donation in New York City, Tyson and LULAC will also be donating truckloads in Los Angeles, California, Houston, Texas, and Miami, Florida.
- Food Bank for New York City has been the city’s major hunger-relief organization working to end hunger throughout the five boroughs for more than 30 years
