This week while many people are thinking about what they are thankful for, many Americans are also looking for ways that they can give back. The beverage industry is doing the same.

Yesterday, in New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that beverage companies are teaming up with other companies to help feed over 35,000 people statewide this Thanksgiving.

"The partnerships we have forged with these companies ensure that families throughout the state will have a warm, nutritious meal that they can enjoy with loved ones,” said Cuomo.

He went on to add that, “The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo have donated over 500 cases of beverages, including juice and other drinks, to be distributed with the meals.”

We applaud these companies and people across our country that are helping bring some holiday cheer to those who need it most. Happy Thanksgiving!
