Little Free Pantry Founder Receives Award and $50,000 from Tyson to Expand Initiative

Recently, Tyson Foods, Inc. recognized Jessica McClard, founder of the nonprofit organization Little Free Pantry, with the Tyson Foods Meals that MatterHero award and $50,000 to expand the initiative. McClard says $10,000 will go toward providing shelf-stable protein to Little Free Pantries in Northwest Arkansas and some of the $40,000 is going toward developing a website that maps all the hundreds of grassroots pantries that have popped up across the country and the world.
