IN THE COMMUNITY
At Frito-Lay, we believe in Good Food and Good Fun – and that means also doing good in our communities. We’re proud to support several national non-profit organizations and food programs. assisting our neighbors in the communities in which we work and live in the best way we know how to help. Take a look at a few of our partners below to learn more.
Feed the Children
For the last five years we’ve partnered with Feed the Children’s, helping deliver on its mission to fight hunger in cities across the United States. In that time, we’ve helped more than 32,000 families by providing food and personal essentials so the families served can focus on enjoying time with each other instead of worrying about having enough to eat.

American Heart Association
More than 600,000 Americans every year are killed by some form of heart disease. This shocking statistic is just one reason we support the American Heart Association (AHA) and its efforts to raise awareness about heart disease, the No. 1 killer of men and women in the United States. Every year, our employees participate in the annual AHA Heart Walk in Dallas, and we are proud to be the second-highest corporate contributor in our community – second only to the AHA. For more information about the American Heart Association, visit their website at www.heart.org.
Another organization we’re proud to support is the United Way. Since first getting involved ten years ago, we’ve invested more than $26 million in United Way programs. On top of that, our employees have contributed more than 25,000 volunteer hours in the Dallas community alone with our annual Day of Caring event. This year, our CEO, Tom Greco, served as chair of the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas’ 2014 fundraising campaign. To learn more about the United Way, visit their website at www.UnitedWay.org.
