800 Detroit families in need will receive enough food to supplement meals for a week plus daily essentials, thanks to a partnership between PepsiCo and Feed the Children
This is the ninth year PepsiCo and Feed the Children have partnered to help feed families in Detroit, where more than 43 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line1. This distribution event is part of a larger initiative between the two organizations to help feed communities in cities throughout the United States.
“We’re excited to partner with Feed the Children, the city of Detroit, and Second Ebenezer in helping the Detroit community,” said Michael Paul, senior sales director, Mid-America region, PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division. “At Frito-Lay and PepsiCo, we believe in engaging our associates in community projects and initiatives that make a positive difference in places where we live and work.”
“Feed the Children is proud to partner with PepsiCo, Frito-Lay and Second Ebenezer today,” said Travis Arnold, Feed the president and CEO. “We know that when we combine our efforts we will have a greater impact on the lives of families who need us most—right here in America.”
