NTC Initiative Surpasses 200 Million Meals

Child Hunger Relief Effort Marks Important Milestone


Nu Skin today announced more than 200 million meals have been donated to malnourished and hungry children around the world through its innovative social enterprise, Nourish the Children. Nu Skin distributors, customers and employees, purchase and donate nutrient-dense VitaMeal® through a humanitarian initiative the company introduced in June 2002.


“In just over eight years, we surpassed 200 million meals donated.” said Steve Lund, vice chairman of Nu Skin Enterprises board of directors and executive director of Nourish the Children. “This is an incredible milestone in Nu Skin’s history. Each additional VitaMeal donation means one more child is nourished and able to claim a brighter future.  The driving force behind Nu Skin has always been, and will always be, improving people’s lives.”
