CAMPAIGN: PepsiCo Performance with Purpose

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

In 2013, PepsiCorps team members traveled to northeast Brazil to help improve the lives of local farmers in communities affected by severe drought. PepsiCorps is a volunteer program that sends employees on one-month assignments to address sustainability challenges in underserved parts of the world. PepsiCorps helps bring Performance with Purpose to life for communities we serve while building leadership, team-building and problem-solving skills for our employees.
