America’s beverage companies are working together to reduce sugar from beverages nationwide. As part of our Balance Calories Initiative we are partnering with national and local organizations that are serving their communities and helping people achieve a balanced lifestyle. Hear from two of our partners below.

Dr. Melony Samuels and our partners at Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger (BSCAH) are located in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y., and are the largest pantry in Brooklyn, providing the basic staples of a well-balanced diet to more than 30,000, low-income individuals each month.

Across the country in Los Angeles, Jovenes Inc. is doing the hard work to ensure successful transitions from homelessness to successful living for homeless youth in East LA & Boyle Heights. Their various programs are providing opportunities for youth to develop lifelong skills, including maintaining a healthy diet, to achieve long term results.
