I recently had the opportunity to participate in the Tyson Hunger Heroes Champions for Kids Project at my local Sam's Club. Right here in Texas 27% of children live in poverty and with food insecurity. Do you know the statistics for your area? During the month of August, for every bag of chicken nuggets purchased Tyson will donate one meal (4 oz) of protein to kids in need right here in the US. Read more about how to become a Hunger Hero here. Including Tyson Chicken Nuggets in your meal plan this month not only helps you provide a quick and easy protein for your family, but also helps another family feed their children. You can see more from my Sam's shopping trip here. If you would like to try the chicken nuggets in person, you can attend a demonstration at your local Sam's Club from 11-2 on August 29th, 30th, and 31st.

Tyson Chicken Nuggets come in a 5 lb bag for less than $10 (here in Texas), and each bag contains 25 servings. Our family needs 3 servings per meal, so that means we will get 8 meals out of one bag of nuggets. That adds up to $1.25 per meal for our protein, which is definitely budget friendly. A family of four would get 6 meals out of one bag of chicken nuggets. The bags are resealable, so you can take out only what you need for that meal and bake them quickly while saving the rest for later.
