Nick Cannon Feeds America

It’s always great to see celebrities take out time to lend a helping hand to people who can really use it.

A few days ago, Mosaic, PepsiCo’s African American employee resource group teamed up with Feeding America to hold a national day of service for PepsiCo employees.  Together with actors Nick Cannon and Raven-Symone, more than 1,400 PepsiCo employees donated their time and energy to support 30 local food banks across the United States.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, approximately 49 million Americans do not have enough to eat. Most individuals who are struggling with hunger are not homeless or out of work. Each year, 37 million people in the United States, including 14 million children and nearly 3 million seniors, rely on relief from Feeding America food banks and the agencies they serve for emergency food.

Nick Cannon joined 100 PepsiCo employees in New York City.  He along with other volunteers packed 40,000 pounds of fresh apples into bags for delivery to emergency feeding programs in the five boroughs, where they’ll reach thousands of New Yorkers who are struggling with hunger.

Among the many projects taking place across the country, Raven-Symone will spearhead PepsiCo’s product donation of over 10,000 cases of Quaker Oats products to food banks near PepsiCo’s three headquarter locations.
