 WEIGHT WATCHERS LAUNCHES MAJOR FOOD DRIVE TO FEED THE HUNGRY
 FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Florine Mark, president and CEO of the WW Group, Inc., the largest franchise of Weight Watchers International, announced today, Jan. 17, that Weight Watchers will be conducting a major food drive in all WW Group, Inc. franchise areas during the month of February.
