Tyson K-12 is pleased to announce seven K-12 school foodservice teams were awarded a piece of $25,000 in grant funding through the company’s Great Grant Giveaway program. Since its inception in 2015, Tyson K-12 has awarded more than $100,000 in grant funding to schools.
Grant recipients can use the funds to purchase equipment or materials that can help enhance their foodservice operations. Diane Drooger of David Douglas School in Oregon said their $2,500 grant funds will likely be used to purchase additional bakers’ racks to support to-go meals for students.
“Earlier this month, we realized we would need tall bakers’ racks for our kitchen since our school district will be doing online learning through December, possibly longer. We will have meal pick-up areas for families at our schools, in addition to bus stops – the additional racks will really help our staff,” said Drooger.
