Herbalife Nutrition celebrates their success of its Nutrition for Zero Hunger initiative
Herbalife Nutrition, is celebrating the success of its Nutrition for Zero Hunger initiative. This ongoing initiative is aimed at eradicating hunger and to date the company and the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation have donated more than $3 million in financial aid and in-kind gifts.
Herbalife Nutrition’s VP of Global Government Affairs, Randall Popelka, discussed how the pandemic has impacted hunger in the US.
It is estimated that up to 132 million more people than previously projected could go hungry by the end of 2020 as the pandemic affects food supply chains, damages economies, and devastates communities. The global need for hunger support far outpaces the world's ability to meet the demand. Collaboration between nonprofit organizations, corporations, government, and NGOs is vital to help those in need get the nutrition they require to thrive.
