Today won't be the first time I've shared a story about our partnership with Feed the Children, and I'm also proud to say it won't be the last. Last week, volunteers from Frito-Lay and PepsiCo joined with Feed the Children in Hartford, Conn., to distribute boxes containing food and basic essentials to 800 families in need in the area.
Together, Feed the Children, Frito-Lay and PepsiCo, along with Avon and PriceRite, provided enough supplemental food and essentials to help support a family of four for up to a week. The boxes distributed included:
- 25 pounds of food
- 10 pounds of essentials
- A box of AVON products
- A variety of Frito-Lay snacks
- A variety of Quaker and Aunt Jemima products
- Aquafina water
- Fresh produce and shelf-stable foods from PriceRite
The event was one of many Feed the Children has planned across the country, so that instead of worrying about having enough to eat, hundreds of families can enjoy their summer. The recipient families were pre-identified by Feed the Children partner agency Community Renewal Team.
