Last weekend I spent the day with my mom and it was just the two of us, with none of the kids. This is a rarity, and we had a great time! We did some shopping at Sam’s Club and she decided it was time for her to go ahead and get a membership. We went on a Sunday afternoon when all the great demos are present with the taste testing in full effect. While I went browsing the frozen food aisle, we ran into the Tyson Chicken Nuggets demo and learned all about the Tyson Hunger Heroes Champions for Kids Project at Sam’s Club. Tyson and Sam’s Club are partnering with the organization Champions for Kids to help end hunger for children. For every participating purchase of bagged Tyson Chicken Nuggets at a Sam’s Club location, four ounces of protein will be donated!
Pay your local Sam’s Club a visit between August 29-31, where they will be holding their own demos sharing more information about the Tyson Hunger Heroes Project between the hours of 11-2. See the video below for more details of this great cause and how you can be a part of it!
I’ve shared with you many times my affinity for Tyson, and I’ve created a few recipes with their products. It was really special to me to see them support a cause that I can so closely relate to, since our money situation is what brought about my love for cooking and eventually assisted in the creation of this blog. I instantly wanted to be a part of it, and I knew just what I would create with my bag of chicken nuggets!
I remember a few years ago, Big Mama would always ask us to pick up a chicken bowl up the street. She didn’t drive, so often she’d call and ask if we were out and about, and if we could bring her one. She loved those things! At one point, long before my food blogger days and before I even really found my love for cooking, we would frequent fast dining and fast food locations. When we started pinching pennies, our eating habits were the first thing that had to be restructured. I had to get creative on the cheap, so often I would recreate some of our favorite fast food meals at home, often making them healthier and even tastier! I wanted to do a copycat recipe, and I instantly thought of Big Mama and her Chicken Bowls. I thought these Tyson Chicken Nuggets would be perfect in this copycat recipe, and the kids would love it. Of course, they didn’t let me down!
