Last week I shared with you a story about our partnership with Feed the Children. In that story, I said I was proud I would have the opportunity to share more stories about our partnership with such a great organization. Today, volunteers from Frito-Lay and PepsiCo joined with Feed the Children in Buffalo, N.Y., 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 Tops Markets, Buffalo Dream Center and Avon provided the following food and essentials to help support a family of four for up to a week:
- 25 pounds of food
- 10 pounds of essentials
- A box of AVON products
- Frito-Lay variety packs of snacks
- Quaker and Rice-A-Roni products
- Pepsi brand beverages
- Fresh produce and shelf-stable foods donated by Tops Markets
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. Check out a few photos from the event below, and get more information about Feed the Children on their website, Facebook and Twitter.
