Nourish the Children

Nourish One More Child

In 2002, Nu Skin launched the “Nourish the Children” initiative to help address the problem of childhood hunger in a sustainable manner through “public participation”. Nu Skin distributed nutritious food to the starving children around the world in order to nourish and reinvigorate those who are suffering from malnutrition and save their lives. “We are fortunate to be part of something so much bigger than ourselves,” said Steve Lund, Executive Chairman of Nu Skin Enterprises Board of Directors and Executive Director of the Nourish the Children.


Over 100 guests from ten countries around the world gathered to Malawi in June 2010 to witness the remarkable outcomes from their purchases and donations of VitaMeal. They visited the plant where VitaMeal is made locally and provides jobs and increased economic development. After tasting the maiz and soya bean porridge, they deemed it “delicious”. The donor guests visited the community-based child care centers where pre-school children from local villages gather daily for education and nutrition. They shed tears as they listened to the children sing and dished VitaMeal into cups and bowls for each child.
Groups visited orphanages, crisis nurseries, and centers that help prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS—and left with the assurance that their VitaMeal purchases and donations are making a difference in Malawi. Some of the visitors met personally with the Vice-President of Malawi in her home where they received her sincere gratitude and praise. One visitor exclaimed, “It was one of the top ten experiences of my life…and I’ve lived a long time!” Another remarked, “So powerful! I had seen the videos but nothing compares to actually being there  and handing the gorgeous little beings a bag of VitaMeal that will feed them for a month. There is nothing that compares to that feeling. Thank you!”
Over 122 million meals have nourished the children of Africa due to your support. But there are so many children that still need nourishment. Please consider nourishing one more child through your own VitaMeal purchases and donations or by encouraging others to purchase and donate.
