Tyson Foods showed up at the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina with a big gift Monday: 30,000 pounds of food.

The donation will allow the food bank to add protein to thousands of summer meals so that area children and their families can continue to access meals during the 2012 Kids Summer Stock Campaign.

"We are so grateful to Tyson Foods for this donation of nutritious food that will enable us to provide a high-quality protein to people who struggle to put food on the table. The donation comes at a critical time when our supply of food is down during the summer months," said Peter Werbicki, President/CEO of Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina in a statement.

As part of its 2012 "Show Us Your Nugget Face" promotion, Tyson Foods has pledged to donate 1 million pounds of food to hunger relief organizations across America.
