Los Angeles Rams team up with Albertsons/Vons/Pavillions & Pepsi to tackle hunger in Southern California

The Los Angeles Rams are partnering with Albertsons/Vons/Pavilions (AVP) and Pepsi to tackle food insecurity in under-resourced communities throughout Southern California with a series of initiatives that will feature Rams defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day and benefit three Feeding America® network food banks in Los Angeles County, Orange County and Ventura County.

Southern California residents will be able to support the efforts by redeeming eligible For U® offers on Pepsi-Cola products at their local Albertsons, Vons or Pavilions stores between October 13 to December 28. For every redemption of eligible For U® offers, Pepsi will donate the monetary equivalent of 10 meals* to Feeding America®, up to a maximum of 100,000 meals.

Below is a list of initiatives that will take place from October through the holidays in December:

Mobile Food Distribution at Compton College

With the growing food insecurity of college students, the Rams, AVP and Pepsi will team up with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to host a drive-thru mobile food distribution at Compton College. Rams defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph Day, Cheerleaders and volunteers will serve an expected 800 Angelenos struggling with food insecurities and address the dramatic increase in demand for food assistance caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tuesday, October 12 from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Compton College located at 1111 E Artesia Blvd, Compton, CA 90221

Second Harvest Orange County College Pantry Program at Fullerton College

Pepsi and AVP volunteers, Rams Cheerleaders, and mascot Rampage will assemble meal packs for college students in support of Second Harvest Orange County’s College Pantry program. The food kits will feature produce, eggs, milk, and shelf stable goods.

With the exceptional increase in the cost of college tuition, many college students are skipping meals to pay for housing, books and other supplies while consuming cheaper and less healthy foods. The College Pantry program supports 14 different college campuses, provides access to nutritious food, and ensures that all students have enough to eat so they can successfully complete their studies.

Thursday, October 28 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT
