FWD>DFW Spotlight: Frito-Lay

Proud to call North Texas home, Frito-Lay and United Way of Met­ropolitan Dallas are committed to Southern Dallas Thrives, an initiative to make meaningful improvements in communities across Southern Dallas.

While the residents in Southern Dallas face daily challenges, there is a strength,a tenacity to grow and succeed. Their spirit, and the boundless opportunities they have in front of them, is why we have committed to focusing our community involvement and charitable giving to meet the underserved needs of Southern Dallas and help this very special place grow and develop.

Together with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, we are working to increase the number of kindergarten-­ready children, provide families with nutritious meals and get students the education they need to succeed—all while giving parents access to childcare and job skills for future employment.

Great companies bring people togeth­er to become a force for good and to make meaningful impact in lives. While the 6,500 associates of Frito-Lay and PepsiCo in the Dallas-Fort Worth area are the backbone of this initiative, we hope other companies will join us in making Southern Dallas thrive.
