At Rise Against Hunger, our partners are so important to ensuring we can support the 2 million people we serve. On World Kindness Day, a day all about making a difference through kindness and celebrated annually on November 13, we’re thrilled to feature a guest post from one of our newest partners — Nutrition for Longevity!
World Kindness Day is one of Nutrition for Longevity’s favorite global holidays because it is a day dedicated to the importance of being kind to yourself, each other and the world. On a day devoted to celebrating the importance of compassion in all aspects of our lives and all that it means to be kind, we are excited to announce our partnership with Rise Against Hunger.
820 million people around the world do not get the food they need to live a healthy life, and Nutrition for Longevity (N4L) is committed to fighting hunger and malnutrition. Since our inception, we have been focused on enhancing the quality of food that the average American consumes. As we continue to grow, so must our company’s goals. With our goal to reach people across the United States well underway, we have set our sights on a new priority — expanding our reach to populations globally that do not have access to healthy foods. Through our recent partnership with Rise Against Hunger, we are one step closer to reaching our worldwide goal.
As a trusted community partner, N4L hopes to drive Rise Against Hunger’s impact beyond this achievement. We took our first step on the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization’s World Food Day. Celebrated annually on October 16, this day is celebrated as a reminder of the dedication to end hunger.
This year, Rise Against Hunger volunteers across the United States packaged close to 175,000 meals for food-insecure communities across the globe. Each packaged meal consists of soy, a vegetable mixture, rice and a micro-nutrient packet to deliver transformational nutrition to individuals facing hunger worldwide, especially children.
To support the Rise Against Hunger volunteers, the N4L team delivered 200 of our farm fresh, fully prepared meal kits to keep those packaging meals nourished and energized throughout the day. The ability to support Rise Against Hunger volunteers as they spent their day doing so much good was incredible. By delivering our meal kits, we spent time taking a step back and appreciating how fortunate we are to have access to fresh, sustainable, delicious food. These volunteers were exemplifying kindness on World Food Day, and we were so fortunate to be able to serve as fuel for those doing so much good.
