Plexus Worldwide, the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based wellness company focused on health and happiness, recently announced that donations from its new Nourish One™ initiative will help to provide over 2 million meals to children and families in need.
The meals will be provided through Feeding America, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks.
The partnership between Plexus and Feeding America was announced in early June, when the company made an initial $100,000 donation. Plexus, through its philanthropic organization Plexus Charities, makes a donation to Feeding America for every serving of Plexus Lean purchased. Each bag of Plexus Lean generates a monetary donation equivalent to 14 meals through Feeding America’s local partner food banks.
“Feeding America is excited for this new partnership and grateful for Plexus’ commitment to helping children and families in need,” said Nancy Curby, senior vice president, Corporate Partnerships, at Feeding America. “For Plexus to hit the 2 million meal milestone so quickly is amazing, but what makes us even more excited is knowing that Plexus and Plexus Ambassadors are eager to find ways to keep giving back in their own communities.”
Alec Clark, president and founder of Plexus added, “As a company we believe in helping our Ambassadors and employees build a legacy not only for families, but for their communities. Hunger and food insecurity is a real concern for thousands of families. These first 2 million meals are just the beginning to growing our partnership with Feeding America to have a real impact within this often-unnoticed community need.”
