In 2012, Tyson Foods introduced new school lunch items like unbreaded, whole muscle chicken pieces. The company completed the removal of trans fat from its school foodservice products in 2005 and over the past five years has achieved sodium reductions across a range of foods, including those destined for schools.As part of today's announcement, Tyson Foods revealed the first recipient of an annual award from the company to a school striving to improve its health and nutrition programs. Tyson selected the Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn, part of the New York City School District and a member of the Alliance's Healthy Schools Program, for its efforts to strengthen its nutrition and physical activity programs. The company has helped fund the purchase of new equipment for the school's wellness room, including air hockey and ping pong tables, stationary cycles, two televisions for exercise gaming systems, X-box 360 fitness bundle, and a variety of other equipment designed to keep the students moving. In addition, Tyson employees from the company's New Holland, Pennsylvania plant also helped with installing equipment.
