TMJF, Pepsico & Feed The Children Unite to Defeat Hunger


Philadelphia - In the United States, the roots of hunger go deep. In Philadelphia, 27 percent of households live below the poverty level and far too many children go to bed hungry. This is why The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation and PepsiCo has partnered with Feed the Children to host  “Get Ready Fest: Feeding Philadelphia”—an event that provides 800 pre-identified Philadelphia-area families with wellness resources, food, and essentials. The event will take place Friday, July 10th at Spruance Elementary School (6401 Horrocks St., Philadelphia). Get Ready Fest sponsors and volunteers will offer a number of activities for a day of fun, and distribute food and personal essentials.The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation (TMJF) is proud to team up with Feed the Children again at this important event,” said TMJF Founder and Philadelphia Eagles Free Safety Malcolm Jenkins. “Year-round, The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation works to empower communities and equip young people and their families with the tools they need to succeed. This is our second year partnering up on “Get Ready Fest,” and we value this opportunity to help alleviate hunger and food insecurity in our region.”
