Forever Living Products recently announced reaching its goal of providing 5 million meals to help combat world hunger.
According to the company, thousands of employees and Forever Business Owners came together over the course of two years to volunteer at meal packing events and raise money to feed families and children all over the world.
The company hosted a celebratory meal packing event on December 18 in honor of reaching the milestone in the fight against hunger. More than 200 volunteers and employees packaged meals in Forever’s home city of Scottsdale, Arizona, to mark the successful completion of the Forever We Rise Campaign. Forever Living’s Founder and CEO Rex Maughan sounded the ceremonial gong to mark the 5-millionth meal packed.
The campaign was launched as part of the partnership between Forever Living Products and Rise Against Hunger with the goal of packaging 5 million meals by 2020.
“Thanks to the dedication and effort of more than 17,000 Forever Living employees and Business Owners around the world, we didn’t just meet, but exceeded our 5 million meal goal,” said Forever Living Products President Gregg Maughan. “These meals help fuel dreams and build stronger communities as we work together to create a world where no child has to go to bed hungry or wonder where their next meal will come from.”
Volunteer teams in 38 cities across 24 countries worked to reach the meal packing goal. The meals provided will impact over 51,000 lives in 16 countries.
