Struggle with hunger.

For lots of kids, hunger makes it difficult to bring dreams to life.

Access to affordable nutrition and increased wholesome options are beneficial to childhood development. Unfortunately, millions of dollars in federal funding of nutrition programs go unused every year.1

We saw an opportunity to help fill this gap.

Food for Good brings together the nutrition know-how and food-moving fleet of PepsiCo, with local partners to deliver millions of tasty, nutritious meals to kids across the country.
