This coming Friday, September 18, Tyson Foods will donate 1800 cases of uncooked chicken breast tenderloin fritters to the public. The donation site will be at Western Illinois University 3200 River Drive, Moline IL. It will be a no-touch, drive-through operation, with no requirements needed to receive the donated food. Hours are from noon – 4 or 5pm, or whenever the chicken runs out. Volunteers will place 20# boxes of chicken into trunks (one per car) and others will hand a sheet of paper with cooking instructions to the driver. This is wonderful community outreach by Tyson Foods; please attend the event if you are interested and/or feel free to forward this to others who also might be interested.
To access the distribution site, simply enter the WIU campus off 34th St, turning west onto University Drive, driving straight ahead. University Drive runs alongside the railroad tracks. There will be volunteers directing traffic.
