PepsiCo And Feed The Children To Bring Help And Hope To Miami Children And Families In Need

MIAMI, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PepsiCo and Feed The Children today are providing two semi tractor-trailers full of food and essentials to help 800 Miami, Fla., families in need. More than 50 volunteers from PepsiCo and Feed The Children are distributing non-perishable food and personal care items to families at the Overtown Youth Center in Miami.

PepsiCo, a longtime partner of Feed The Children, is sponsoring the distribution and donating a variety of PepsiCo snacks and beverages.

In Miami, 45 percent of children live below the poverty line, and across Florida, 923,963 children are considered below the poverty line. Feed The Children partner agency Overtown Youth Center has pre-identified families who will receive the boxes of food and personal care items, which are designed to help support a family of four for up to one week. 

The food and personal care items distribution is part of Feed The Children's Americans Feeding Americans Caravan, which has helped more than 425,000 families across the country since it began in 2009.

"We sincerely appreciate our partner PepsiCo for making this distribution possible to support Miami families adversely affected by the economy," said Tony Sellars, spokesperson for Feed The Children. "With their help, along with Overtown Youth Center, this distribution will provide relief for them at a crucial time."
