It is our mission to make this world a healthier and happier place. For every mix sold, we donate one packet of life-saving food to children suffering from severe acute malnutrition through our partnership with Action Against Hunger. This makes our superfoods even more super! Together we can change the world – join us now!
Every year 2.6 million children around the world die from severe malnutrition – that is one child every 12 seconds. These children have an extremely low weight-for-height ratio and suffer from wasting (extreme thinness) or edema (swelling) – oftentimes as a result of the lack of nutritional foods. These life-threating conditions are affecting currently around 20 million children worldwide. This can be prevented!
The most recent innovation in the fight against hunger are the effective Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTF) called the Plumpy Nut packages. This powerful package contains an extremely nutrient-rich paste made predominately from peanuts and enhanced with a mixture of vitamins and minerals. This revolutionary product requires no refrigeration, clean water or cooking and has a shelf life of two years. By consuming three Plumpy Nuts a day for seven weeks, a child can recover from near death to certain survival.
Action Against Hunger has pursued its vision of a world without hunger for over three decades, combating hunger in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity. Their reach extends to over 45 countries and their innovative programs in nutrition, food security, livelihoods, water, sanitation and hygiene help more than 9 million people each year.
While they are recognized as a world leader in the fight against malnutrition, they are also an efficient non-profit. Action Against Hunger has received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, a distinction only 2% of NGOs achieve, and has maintained this stellar rating for eight years running. In addition, Action Against Hunger spends 92% of revenue on program delivery.
Because Action Against Hunger is a highly impactful and an efficient non-profit, we entered into a partnership where Action Against Hunger delivers Plumpy Nuts to children in need. We're honored to have them coordinate the deliveries of our Plumpy'Nut® donations.
