The FFG Model

Non-Profit Partnerships

Our Disaster Relief Efforts

play animation

When hurricanes ravaged the coasts of Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico in late summer of 2017, it resulted in billions of dollars in damage and left thousands without food or shelter. PepsiCo immediately pledged to help those affected.

Through the Food for Good initiative, 1 million meals were delivered to those impacted by the natural disasters.

Innovation

Food for Good worked with PepsiCo's highly-awarded Research and Development team to develop several innovative solutions that help local nonprofits with food storage and delivery, including:

  • A "cold box technology" that allows perishable food products to be transported within ambient trucks, which are more environmentally friendly and cost efficient than refrigerated trucks.
  • Hot food transportation solutions that keep meals hot for more than four hours.
  • More cost effective and environmentally friendly packaging for meals.
