Friday Night Live, a Corning, California, USA, teen group who helps out local seniors, discovered the seniors were sharing part of their Meals on Wheels food with their pets because they could not afford to buy petfood, according to Corning Observer .

The group asked petfood manufacturers to help, and  Pedigree  responded with a donation of gift certificates for 500 pounds of dog food, said FNL leader Tina Zastrow.
