Tyson Foods recently distributed chicken nuggets to part-time and full-time Ashe County Schools employees.

The Ashe Post and Times reports Wes Cornwell and Jonathan Helms of Tyson along with a number of volunteers presented the chicken nuggets to show appreciation to, and to thank, teachers for their work for students and the community.

Tyson has also delivered nuggets to Wilkes County School employees.

According to the report, Superintendent Phyllis Yates confirmed there was no health risk involved in accepting the nuggets prior to distribution with Jennifer Greene, Health Director at AppHealthCare, because the Wilkesboro Food Service Division of Tyson had no cases of COVID-19.
