Feed the Children, PepsiCo lend a hand in Detroit

DETROIT — Feed the Children and PepsiCo extended a helping hand to families in Detroit by providing them with food, essentials and Avon products. Sixteen hundred families visited Second Ebenezer Church on 14601 Dequindre Road and took home boxes containing food and basic essentials that filled four tractor-trailers.

This marks the fifth year the two entities joined together to fight hunger in Detroit, supporting nearly 11,000 families in the process. The even was one of many that Feed the Children has planned across the country.

"We believe in a world where no child goes to bed hungry-- a world in which kids can be kids and grow up wide-eyed, curious, playful, eager to learn, strong, joyful, and full of dreams," said Kevin Hagan, Feed the Children president and CEO. "PepsiCo, its employees, and our friends at Walmart and Sam's Club are not just providing food and essentials today. They are helping kids be kids."
