Nu Skin Reaches 750 Million Meals Purchased and Donated in its Fight Against Child Malnutrition
PROVO, Utah — Nov. 15, 2021 — Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) today announced it has reached the milestone of providing 750 million meals for children since 2002 through its Nourish the Children initiative. Malnourished children in more than 50 countries around the world have been fed VitaMeal,* a nutrient-dense food, from one of NTC's third-party charity partners after Nu Skin sales leaders, customers or employees purchase and donate bags of food.
“It is amazing to think about the impact of providing 750 million meals to malnourished children during the past two decades,” said Steven J. Lund, Nu Skin executive chairman of the board and executive director of Nourish the Children. “Reaching such a significant milestone is a testament to the compassion and generosity of Nu Skin’s sales leaders, customers and employees and to the collective good we can do. We realize that much more still needs to be done to fight childhood malnutrition, and it's our desire to help even more children as we aim to provide one billion meals.”
Unlike simple grains with a mostly caloric benefit, VitaMeal is a nutrient-dense food scientifically formulated to meet the nutritional needs of malnourished children. As part of the overall development of VitaMeal, Nu Skin's nutritional scientists determined the ingredients and ratios that were well suited for a malnourished child. The result is a product that provides the essential vitamins and minerals, with a balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat and fiber.
