PepsiCo has taken this initiative as part of its #GiveMealsGiveHope global program, said a press release.
BRAC will be the on-ground implementing partner to provide dry rations to the low income and ultra-poor families in close collaboration with the local administration, including law enforcement authorities.
Country Manager PepsiCo Bangladesh, Debasish Deb said “We are committed to give our full support to the government in its fight against the pandemic and will continue to do our best to serve the nation in these challenging times.”
BRAC Executive Director, Asif Saleh said, “Generous meals support from PepsiCo Bangladesh is a timely and fitting solution for emergency food sustenance.”
He said millions of daily wage earners and the ultra-poor have been hit hard by the economic aftermath of the pandemic. A recent survey by BRAC reveals 14 percent low-income families do not have food at home.
