Employees of Mannatech, Incorporated recently assembled over 55,000 meals for malnourished children around the world.
Working with Mission 5 Million (M5M) and Kids Around the World, employees gathered at the company’s headquarters in Flower Mound, Texas, to assemble the meals. Each meal packet contains six servings, and includes a mixture of lentils, rice, carrots, onions, tomatoes, celery, white cabbage, bell peppers, flax seed and Mannatech’s PhytoBlend powder, which combine to form provide badly needed nourishment to children.
“The love and energy in the room was amazing and wonderful,” said Sarah Louthan, executive director of M5M. “To have nearly 100 Mannatech employees, and even some local Mannatech Associates, giving their time and energy to prepare 55,000 meals is heart-warming and inspirational.”
“I loved that we could all take just a little bit of time and make such a positive impact,” said Stephanie Lusk, Mannatech’s senior director of Human Resources.
Mannatech, M5M and Kids Around the World have combined to provide 16 million meals for malnourished children in 2018. For every $100 in Mannatech products purchased, Mannatech donates a month’s worth of PhytoBlend for a child.
