Juice Plus+ Foundation: Helping Communities in Need
Our company has a pretty cool mission – Inspiring Healthy Living Around The World. Every day, our employees and representatives inspire friends and family members to make healthier choices. We get to make a difference in people’s lives. That gives us a lot to be thankful for. And, it makes us want to expand our mission to those in our communities that don’t have the same access to nutritious meals every day.
Earlier this year, we kicked off our 10 Million Meals initiative through The Juice Plus+ Foundation. Our goal: donate 10 million meals of Juice Plus+ Complete® in over 20 countries over the next five years. But, we knew that this would not be easy. We wanted to ensure that the nutrition-packed shakes were making it to those in most dire need of better nutrition. Planning for 10 Million Meals reminded us that we have something else to be thankful for – great partners that do amazing work.
For over 25 years, Juice Plus+ has been a proud supporter of the work of Volunteers of America (voa.org), one of America’s largest and most comprehensive charitable human services organizations. They provide services to over two million people in 400 communities across the country. Because of their long record of success, we knew that VOA could help us realize our goal of sharing nutrition to those in need.
In late summer, the first bags of Juice Plus+ Complete® shake mix were shipped to VOA locations across the United States, along with commercial blenders and recipe books. The staff and volunteers continue to make and serve nutritious shakes to their clients each day. Low income seniors, homeless veterans and disadvantaged youth are just a few of those who benefit from our nutritious shakes, thanks to the support of the VOA.
Our goal was not to just share meals, but to also volunteer our time. A group of our Juice Plus+ representatives planned a day of service at one of the VOA facilities in California. The volunteer group may have shown up hoping to inspire, but ultimately, they are the ones that walked away with inspiration – and gratitude.
Yes, this Thanksgiving we, at Juice Plus+, have a lot to be thankful for. Great partners, an amazing, supportive community and the ability to help spread healthy living around the world. What are you thankful for?
