DALLAS, Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Le-Vel has partnered with global relief organization Rise Against Hunger to work toward the goal of eliminating hunger by 2030. Le-Vel, the world leader in human nutritional innovation, is proud to announce the launch of Thrive Nourish, a humanitarian aid mix that provides protein and nutritional benefits to those in critical need. #ThriveAgainstHunger is a call to action that asks Thrivers everywhere to take a stand against one of the world's most pressing issues.
Approximately 22,000 adults and children throughout the world die each day from malnutrition or lack of food. And 795 million people -- one out of every nine people walking this earth -- are affected by hunger.
Rise Against Hunger meals, packaged by volunteers, are designed to provide a comprehensive array of micronutrients. The meals include enriched rice, soy protein, dried vegetables, 23 essential vitamins and nutrients, and starting today some will also include Thrive Nourish by Le-Vel. Together, Le-Vel and Rise Against Hunger will Thrive Against Hunger to make a life-changing impact on the health of adults and children suffering from vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Any Le-Vel Brand Promoter or customer can donate an order of Thrive Nourish either on a one-time basis or on monthly auto-ship. The product is then sent directly to those in need. Thrive Nourish is based on premium-grade ingredients, but it's tailored for the needs of individuals who are nutritionally deficient – particularly those with a lack of protein in their diets.
Through Rise Against Hunger's Nourishing Lives Initiative, Rise Against Hunger meals and Thrive Nourish will be distributed in schools where need is most critical, therefore boosting school enrollment and attendance. These safety net programs provide nourishment along with additional skills training or services that can help break the cycle of poverty.
"There's simply no excuse for hunger in this world in 2018. Nutrition shouldn't just be for people who can afford it. We're humbled to have the opportunity to work with Rise Against Hunger to ensure that our brothers and sisters around the world have access to the nutrition they deserve," say Co-CEOs Jason Camper and Paul Gravette. "And this is about so much more than nutrition. When we can help lift people out of hunger and show them how to create sustainable communities, the entire course of their lives changes. They can complete school, go to college, find a job, provide income for their families. Rise Against Hunger is on a mission to wipe out world hunger by 2030. Our Brand Promoters, their customers and our employees are excited and ready to partner with them to Thrive Against Hunger and make that vision a reality."
Founded in 2012 by Jason Camper and Paul Gravette, Le-Vel formulates and sells nutritional/health and wellness products and is the only health and wellness company that uses cloud-based technology for its day-to-day operations.
