Plexus Worldwide recently announced its advancement to Mission Partner for Feeding America.
“Plexus has always been committed to giving back to the world. That’s why we created our Plexus Charities and Nourish One program,” said Tarl Robinson, CEO and founder of Plexus. “For each serving of Plexus Lean, our meal replacement line, we donate a meal in partnership with Feeding America—a meal for a hungry child or family in need.”
The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, whose mission is to feed America’s hungry though a nationwide network of member food banks and engage in the fight to end hunger. Feeding America Mission Partners made aggregate contributions or commitments of $500,000 or more, donations of 5 million pounds or more of food and grocery products, or combined gifts of $250,000 or more and 2.5 million pounds or more of food and grocery products.
“In the past year, it has been extraordinary to watch our Nourish One program grow and flourish, as a result of the sales of Plexus Lean,” added Christopher Pair, president of Operations and International for Plexus. “We are excited to see what our final donation tally will be at the end of our first year (June 30), and we look forward to a second year partnership to help people build a path to a brighter future.”
“We are thrilled that Plexus is part of our family,” said Rowena Norman, director of New Partnerships. “With great partners such as Plexus, who share our vision and provide valued donations and support, the Feeding America network of food banks, pantries and meal programs serve virtually every community in the United States.”
