Salt Lake City, Utah (October 12, 2010) 4Life Research™ announced today a partnership with international hunger relief organization Feed The Children. Through this new partnership, Feed The Children will distribute 4Life Fortify™ meal packs on behalf of 4Life distributors to malnourished children around the world. 4Life Fortify contains beans, rice, lentils, and a complex of vitamins and minerals.
4Life introduced the meal pack as part of a for-profit program dedicated to improving nutrition for children around the world. To launch the partnership between 4Life and Feed The Children, top 4Life distributors raised more than $115,000 during a matching grant challenge from Foundation 4Life®, 4Life’s non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the philanthropic needs of communities wherever 4Life distributors conduct business.
Feed The Children will now distribute more than 930,000 4Life Fortify meals on behalf of 4Life distributors. Founded in 1979, Feed The Children is consistently ranked as one of the ten largest international charities in the United States. They deliver food, medicine, clothing, and other necessities to individuals, children, and families who lack these essentials due to famine, war, poverty, or natural disasters. In 2009, Feed The Children distributed more than 111 million pounds of food and other essentials to children and their families in all 50 states and internationally.
Since its founding, the organization has reached out to help those in need in 119 countries around the globe. 4Life Co-Founder Bianca Lisonbee: “Feed The Children’s global distribution network is a perfect complement for our global network of distributors and our mission of Together, Building People.” 4Life has offices in 19 countries on five continents to serve a global network of independent distributors through science, success, and service.
