1100 sets of “Cheetos” were given to families in need from the Tula region of Russia. The snacks were provided by the food fund “Rus”. Families with many children and physically challenged children benefited from the action. Some sets included “Lays” chips. The families shared photos with “Cheetos” with the words of gratitude “for tasty snacks”.
Foodbank Rus collects food surplus from manufacturing and redistributes it to the needy. From the website:
“The Foundation is the first foodbank in Russia and regularly cooperates with the Russian Orthodox Church, charity organizations and governmental authorities. In 2016 the Foundation, jointly with the Children’s Rights Commissioner for the President of the Russian Federation, launched the program of food assistance to low-income families with children “Food to Help Mum”.
Within the program, on a weekly basis, dairy goods are distributed among low-income families via the Department of Labor and Social Security of Moscow.”
Lengua Chucha, Mexico (Strutts News Services) – Standing a mere 6-inches tall at the withers, this lil’ pup was hatched a few days after his momma lost interest and wandered from the nest. Finding an open cache of Cheetos that had washed up on the beachhead, lil’ pup was found chowing down on the fluorescent orange morsels.
Since then he’s been moved to a foster shelter, where his diet has been augmented with Big Macs and Super Size Fries, and he is expected to reach 2,500 lbs. (average weight for his age) by the end of the month. Way to go, Lil’ Pup!
