We help to deliver and serve food to local communities heavily impacted by natural disasters and experiencing an increased level of food insecurity. We are committed to answering the call of communities in crisis through our Meals that Matter? disaster relief program.
Our Meals that Matter? disaster relief program is comprised of a fully stocked 53-foot trailer that has the capacity to refrigerate up to 20,000 pounds of food and dry storage for supplies to set up feeding sites and support our on-site cooking crews. The trailer acts as a central supply unit or “mobile kitchen” that can efficiently serve as a disaster relief site.
Depending on the need, the trailer is accompanied by deployment of other trailer tractors that haul food product, water and equipment. In addition, Tyson Foods has donated two Mobile Command Centers to Team Rubicon since 2014, which include sleeping quarters, and office and storage space for staff and volunteers.
