Herbalife Nutrition Commemorates the Inaugural Year of “Nutrition for Zero Hunger”, the Initiative to End World Hunger
Herbalife Nutrition is commemorating the first year of its Nutrition for Zero Hunger initiative and sharing the results in advance of World Food Day. Nutrition for Zero Hunger is a global program that is aligned with the second United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal, which seeks to end hunger in all its forms by 2030 and to achieve food security and improved nutrition.
Through their initiative, they are working with partners to provide resources, meals and education to help feed those in need. In support of their nonprofit partners’ critical programs and education campaigns, Nutrition for Zero Hunger to date has:
- Made available nearly 700,000 nutritious meals to children and families.
- Delivered more than 500,000 servings of donated products and 3,500 pounds of food to families in need
- Provided 47,000 women with breastfeeding and nutrition education for healthy child development
- Provided 40,000 children with essential dietary supplements to reduce nutrient deficiency and support healthy development
“Herbalife Nutrition’s Nutrition for Zero Hunger initiative has been helpful in alleviating hunger, but we have a long way to go in building a world where everyone has access to quality food,” said Alan Hoffman, Executive Vice President, Global Corporate Affairs. “Eradicating hunger will take the combined efforts of governments, non-profits and corporations working together and we will continue working with all interested parties to ensure everyone has access to nutrition.”
