Truvia recently announced the launch of it’s third year in the Sharing a Sweet Future initiative. To date, nearly $1 million in contributions from the Truvia brand have been used to help develop sustainable communities in Bolivia, a region of critical need with one of the highest rates of nutritional deficiencies in South America, over the past two years!
Given the fact that nearly 40 percent of the Bolivian population are unable to afford adequate food for a healthy life, and that one safely prepared, well-balanced school meal a day provides Bolivian children with enhanced nutrition and an incentive for them to regularly attend class, it was definitely time to help.
And help Truvia did. Truvia has helped to feed 49,075 Bolivian schoolchildren. By September of 2014, the Truvía® business will have also provided 70 new fuel-efficient stoves. Isn’t that amazing?
Truvia wants you to have a voice in helping choose the organization they partner with in 2015, so please visit truvia.com/vote to vote for one of these organizations: Feeding America, Edible Schoolyard, Action for Healthy Kids, United Nations World Food Programme and Feed The Children. I am casting my vote for Action for Healthy Kids or Edible Schoolyard, though I’d love to vote for each of them!
