#ad Help Donate Money To Your School With The Tyson Back To School Project A+ Program #cbias

I love cooking for my family, and recently I made a quick dinner of easy chicken tostadas. I have been using Tyson Chicken products for years, and with so many different varieties of chicken to choose from, there's always one that will fit right into my dinner or lunch recipes.

Did you know that when you buy Tyson products, not only are you buying delicious chicken, but you have the opportunity to help the school of your choice to receive money?

Tyson has a program called Tyson Back to School Project A+ that is so easy to join and participate in.
When my children were going to school, it was always very important to me that they had the best learning experience possible. That takes time, caring, volunteering, and money. But not all schools are well funded, and that cuts into the quality of children's educations.

As a grandmother, I care very much about the school my grandson will be starting first grade at, and where his brother and sister will also be attending in a few years.

Signing up for the Tyson Project A+ program lets me and my family help out, and that money can go towards making sure all students have the materials they need for a positive and happy learning experience.

When you buy Tyson chicken with the Project A+ emblem, you can start  helping your own school to receive money from Tyson. Simply look on the back of the package for the label that says, 'Support Your School', cut it out, and give it to your school.

Tyson will give 24 cents for each label they receive, an amount that is higher than most other programs. The money can be used for any need or project that the school decides upon.

Signing up your school to participate in the Tyson Project A+ program is easy. All you need is your school's address and phone number, information that is available on the school's website.

The Tyson Project A+  website is the place to go to get started so that your school can be included in this great program. The site is filled with information and inspiration to motivate yourself, your community, your school and friends to get involved.

If you are like me, you already buy Tyson chicken products to make delicious meals for your family, and this is such an easy way to help out your own school. Can you imagine how much money could be raised if we all participated in the Tyson Project A+ program?

It's exciting to think about, and bringing awareness to this program and spreading the word to others about how they can participate should be our goal.

Tyson's donation of 24 cents per label could make a major impact on our schools if we all got involved. It's so easy to participate, and I encourage you to sign-up your school and start making a difference with the Tyson Project A+ in your child's school.

When I was shopping at Walmart, I saw many, many packages of Tyson Chicken with the Project A+ emblem on them. With so many varieties to choose from, it's easy to provide your family with delicious meals while helping out your school.

Making chicken tostadas with the already cooked Tyson chicken was a breeze. I just heated up the chicken, prepared the other ingredients, like tomatoes, lettuce, and olives, and dinner was ready.

Chicken Tostadas Recipe:


1 bag of Tyson chicken, already grilled and diced
1 package taco seasoning
I large can of refried beans
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
2 large tomatoes, diced
sliced lettuce
can of black olives
sour cream
bottle of hot sauce
package of 12 tostada shells


Cook chicken in a frying pan, breaking it up, and then add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions.

Heat up refried beans in a pan. Cut up tomatoes, olives, and lettuce. Heat tostada shells in the oven until warmed.

Spread a layer of beans, and then chicken on a tostada shell. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, olives, cheese, sour cream and hot sauce.

With back to school just around the corner for us, we'll be using Tyson chicken products to make lots of easy and delicious dinners.

I love that using the foods we already buy and enjoy can help make a difference to my grandson's school.
I am happy to be participating in the Tyson Back to School Project A+ program, and I hope you'll join too, and start helping to make a difference in the school of your choice.

    1. Aww, thank you!! I love the plates too, they are vintage :)

  4. You might laugh but I've never made tostadas before. How did I not know they were this simple? UGH. We love Tyson here too and it makes my life a lot easier plus I love that I can help my daughter's school simply by using the labels off of the products I already buy.

  5. Tostada's are just a great and easy meal. I never though about using Tyson's chicken on them before. I did the campaign too and used the buffalo chicken to make sliders.
