In 2010 PepsiCo Foundation partnered with Save the Children for three years in southeastern Kentucky and collaborated with 13 schools across five rural school districts in isolated and under-resourced pockets of poverty to promote healthy lifestyles and good nutrition to over 5,000 children. Save the Children was often the only service provider in these rural counties that rank among Kentucky’s poorest, as well as the lowest in health outcomes. We implemented innovative nutrition and wellness activities in partnership with targeted schools and communities. Save the Children is proud to say that the PepsiCo Foundation’s funding not only reached individual children, but also had a profound impact on the infrastructure of each participating school.
We then took the “lessons learned” from our success in Kentucky and replicated them as an added layer of enrichment for Save the Children’s Healthy Choices programming across a broader swath of America. PepsiCo Foundation renewed its commitment to the Healthy Choices program for three years, from 2013-2016. Through this expanded program Save the Children is reaching over 12,000 children in 146 schools in 14 states and the District of Columbia with the successful, replicable elements of the PepsiCo Foundation project in Kentucky. The communities in which Save the Children works across the country are isolated, impoverished and under-resourced. The Healthy Choices program aims to increase children’s access to healthy foods, opportunities for physical activity and knowledge of healthy eating.
