Did you know that more than 870 million people around the world do not have enough to eat?
In fact, nearly one in seven people worldwide is malnourished, and hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.*
IMA World Health is pleased to announce a new partnership with 2 Degrees to help feed hungry children.
The partnership is simple and straightforward, but it has an important impact—
That’s right: for the partnership to work, we need your help too.
How does it work? You purchase a 2 Degrees bar, a healthy and tasty snack made with simple, natural and nutritious ingredients like quinoa, chia, millet and dried fruit. (All bars are vegan and free of gluten and GMOs.) IMA and 2 Degrees then use the profits to purchase a packet of ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF)—a nutrient-dense peanut butter paste that is 95% successful in curing malnutrition in young children. Through our health projects in Haiti and sub-Saharan Africa, IMA uses these RUTF meals to support the rehabilitation of malnourished children. One bar for you = one meal for a hungry child.
2 Degrees is the first Buy-One-Give-One food company and a powerful force in demonstrating that what you buy can and does have an important social impact. At IMA and 2 Degrees, we know that what we buy makes a difference too. That’s why we are dedicated to purchasing RUTF that is manufactured in or near the regions where we work when available, so we can support local economies and ensure efficient use of resources—providing additional benefit even beyond the food itself.
“We are excited about this new partnership with 2 Degrees,” said Rick Santos, President and CEO of IMA World Health. “We like that 2 Degrees has not only created products that are a healthy choice, but it also has a strong vision for helping children in need.”
To help support this partnership and help feed children, you can purchase bars online at a 10% discount (using discount code IMA2013 at checkout) at http://twodegreesfood.com/IMA/.
